« Part 8: Removing pencil marks, dry fit and glue up! Part 9 of Moravian workbench build series Part 10: Top not square to the legs now »

I didn’t take many pictures as there wasn’t much to do. I planed the top of the leg assemblies to match the 15 degree angle of the leg tops. I laid the top on and then did a minimal amount of fine tuning to ensure good contact across the top of the legs.

I drilled 3/4” holes with brace N bit to receive 3/4” oak dowels and using blind pinning marked the underside of the top. I drilled the receiving holes in the top and placed it on the legs

Happy to be rid of the saw horses and have a new rock solid workbench. Next up the leg vise build and installation.

Looking very good, which leg vise are you going with?

@Notw, I am going for the traditional style so I bought a maple screw from Lake Erie. The chop will likely be white oak and the bench will be the back stop.
