    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    So it seems this guy is selling plans for this workbench for $12.95. Seems like a bargain. And for another $12.95 you can get a three hour long step by step how-to video. He's got a customizable sketch up file, too, for a bit more.

    Great stuff!!! The camera and editing is, IMO, as impressive.

    Just browsing and watched that video again ( thanks Steven).

    What was different was that one can see the job being undertaken, it and coming together to fit.

    Pure artistry.

    Heh yah, the way he was using his power saws made me nervous.

    Then I'm wondering why he's doing some stuff by hand when I just saw him using a power tool that would have done it. Well just for the hell of it I guess.
