So as both a right of passage as well as a necessity, I've started my workbench build. I've settled on a slightly modified version of Chris Schwarz's "English Workbench" in his workbench book.   Tool used list below.

I have also added free Google SketchUp plans I made to my website www.zhfabrications.com

I apologize in advance for my on-camera awkwardness-- I'm hoping to get better with time.

Alright, so I figured I ought to put out a little something regarding breaking 1k subscribers recently. Thanks again, you guys are an ongoing source of inspiration, and I'd love to hear from you!

BTW, no planes were harmed in the making of this video, all the blades were fully retracted, and I normally rest them on their sides.
