« Part 5: The Rear Top Part 6 of Workbench series Part 7: Installing the Tail Vise »

This update is about two weeks past due. I glued up the front half of the top over the last few days of the Christmas/New Year’s break. I didn’t take too many photos this time.

This one was quicker to build because in this “finished” state it’s missing three more boards for the front, which are for the dog hole strip and other front laminations. As a reminder I’m sort of following the Benchcrafted split-top Roubo design and building with Home Depot 2×4s. And here are the two slabs:

I was able to make a lot of progress—completing both halves of the top—over the Christmas/New Year’s break, which I’m very happy about. Over the last two weeks I’ve been working on the tail vise and all that goes into it—and am still at it. But that’s another blog entry.
