        I was wondering how long before they realized, that no matter what kind of shop it is, eventually you have to have a wood shop to go along with it... make a separate room, or an adjoining space...

                Montana is awesome but it is so cold "frostbite of the lungs" is a real thing.

                  You should have shown the gas prices and make us California people cry.
                  Oh man. I love finishing wood with linseed or tung oil. Looks and smells so good.

                    If I may offer a suggestion...

                    You guys should consider using a router and a bullnose bit -- probably a 1/2" or 3/4"-- to round over the outer edges of your new work tops.

                    You'll find that the 90* edge has a tendency to cut into your forearms, whether you are working, or just resting your arms on the tables, while taking a coffee break.

                    I think you'll find that it makes them far more comfortable to use.

                        Just as a suggestion but you may want to round off the edges and corners of the table. I know from personal experience that wood can be deceptively sharp. Other than that small thing the table top looks awesome!

                                          I think Alec is trolling all the woodworkers in this one.
                                          Thousands of woodworkers are cringing across the globe.

                                                  Many subscribers are watching to see how a blacksmith can make enough money to justify the labor and tool costs. Is Alec only making money from YouTube? Why not share the projects that make money?
