Woodworking: Harder than it Looks

On Sunday I went to Home Depot to make a simple bench. All I brought were measurements and a couple bucks for the wood. I left with a hotdog and 3 realizations:
1) Home Depot employees don't give woodworking advice;
2) My dad is a wicked good carpenter; and,
3) It's easier to build a website about benches then it is to build a bench.

Since then I've been admiring furniture designs including the walking table and the DB Fletcher capstan schwartz expanding table. I'm considering just changing an Ikea TV cabinet into a bench. Thanks goodness for Ikea Hacker.
