Former aviation workbench

My father had an old industrial workbench he bought from North American aviation salvage  in the 60's
It was ugly and green, heavy with drawers made from plywood.
I started disassembling the table then shelved the project. A friend who is a master woodworker, seemingly all phases, was between jobs and hungry to do some magic. 
Dale planned, cut and sistered in pieces of fir where damage had set in. 
It's now my kitchen table in my 1907 farmhouse. 
I missed not getting to do more work on the table, but I've a stack of projects that had priority. Like someone not thinking I never took abefore picture...
Thanks Dale. 

After buying the farmhouse I now have a large shop - note the inca 710, and two inca jointers to the right. My crescent jointer -16" runs on three phase and I have three phase hard wired in the shop already.  It cuts like butter.
