Chris says it would have been faster to build this bench with power tools and easier to have simply purchased it at Home Depot. I agree about the power tools but can't imagine buying a bench such as this at a big box store. If the Home Depot near him stocks anything remotely like this bench then I can't wait to go there.

Chris is an amateur woodworker who likes to use traditional hand tools. In this video he builds an outdoor workbench – starting from logs and progressing to something that cannot be bought in any store. It's a multi-purpose bench: a saw buck, a shaving horse, a hewing bench, and a work table.

Every time I watch this video I notice something new. Here are the tools I can identify – did I miss any?

Sledge and wedges
Splitting maul
Broad axe
Axe
Cross cut saw
Chisel
Mallet
Froe
Hand auger
Brace and bit
Knife
Slick
Scrub plane
Knife
Handsaw

Chris likes what he does and I like watching him do it. This is not the first time one of his videos appeared on Tools of the Trade's website; here's a story about his home-made lathe.
