The Glassblowing Bench

I just completed building my glassblowing bench, and I have to say, it is my favorite piece of equipment.

The wood on the bench is from my 200-year old house. I found it up in the attic. Pumpkin pine, old-growth tree, it is 22 inches wide.  22 inches wide!  That's amazing.  You can't get wood like that today.  I put 4 coats of polyurethane on to protect it.  I think it looks great.  Can't wait to start to use it.
