I used to have a nice work bench many years ago. Then we had a fire and lost most everything. We ended up in a new house, and I started to build my new work bench, when my wife started getting sick often, so the work bench went on hold. It's been 31 years since the house fire in which I lost pretty much everything and now that my 3 daughters are grown and moved out, the wife is on disability, I've decided to try and build a new bench. Why is it important to me? I have been an Amateur Radio operator for a few years now and I used to build my own stuff from back in the Heathkit days. My dream is to start a new workbench and be able to start building things again, as I will be retiring in a few years and this is a passion of mine. Since I'm on a limited income, this would be a dream come true!
