Workbench Build – Rough Surfacing

Our wives were away, so a friend came over to help do some rough surfacing.  While there are still some laminations to do, I wanted to get the rough surfacing done so I’d know what I was working with.

The man, the myth…


Make that the 3rd bag of sawdust since the build started.


And a closer look at what the end top will look like.  Can’t wait.  Love the two walnut strips, though they are a little bent and I’m debating trying to clamp it out.  The 2 oak boards on the left side still need to be surfaced by hand, but it was getting late.
