Workbench Build Continues

This afternoon I finished gluing up the third slab for the top. Only one more slab of five boards, which I should be able to finish next weekend. Then, I should be able to plane each section and glue up the whole top.

Workbench Build

Hooray! Hooray! Today’s the day! The workbench build started today!
I started milling and gluing boards for the top. I have a bench top planer, but not a jointer, so I’m using a hand plane to joint one edge and get one face flat--at
least flat enough to send through the planer.This is the first time I’ve done any serious milling my hand, so it is was  a learning experience.
It was a little slow going at first, but I had it down by the third board.

Then, glue and clamps overnight.
