I had some spare 4/4 red oak and decided to use this to make a saw bench. In my desire to walk down this hand tool path, a saw bench is essential. I tried my best at using a hand plane, and it “almost” worked making jointed edges. More experience is needed as I do not have it down yet. Keeping the planes level, keeping the wood pieces square are things I have to get better at. After some fun hours with the hand plans, the sun was setting. In the end, went power jointer/planer.


Next will be the dovetails, base, & stretcher.
