In late October I sent the same folks who built our bed the bench top dimensions and asked them to provide an estimate for three blanks out of their cheapest hardwood. The estimate came back at $568, on which I choked. I thought to myself, for $568 I could buy the drill press I've always wanted and the materials to assemble them myself, and when I'm done I'll have the seats and still have the drill press I've always wanted.
Steve helped me put it together (the motor head alone weighed seventy-five pounds) and I couldn't help thinking as we built it that it was a sexy machine.
I am so excited to have it. You just have no idea.
