« Part 4: The Top, the beginning of the end Part 5 of Moravian workbench build series Part 6: The legs continue »

I had to take a break leading up to Thanksgiving but did find time to get some shop time in this weekend. Although this is supposed to be a hand tool build I guess it is more of a hybrid since I used a jointer and planer to mill the wood for the legs and the stretchers. I was to lazy to get some 4/4 red oak from Woodcraft 30 miles away so I bought some red oak at the BORG and glued it up.

Legs are milled and glued up too.

Stretchers are all cut and dimensioned.

Got started hand cutting the tenons and it was brutal…until I sharpened a unused saw. Much better after that. I cut the tenons and marked up the legs so much work on this is still undone. I marked up the legs to receive the stretchers for the top bridal joint and started on the wrong face, glad I figured that out before it was too late.
