The Legs

I’ve been out with the flu and just busy in general but I finally got some more work done over the last couple of days. The top turned out really well. There’s a slight cup on the whole thing now but I can plane that out, not too bad.

Starting to mill up the leg boards.

All square!

Clamped up the boards with glue joining every pair of boards. I regret doing it without cauls as they almost all slipped some. Oops. At least I can fix it. Noted for next time.

Now those look like they could be legs! I have to face glue all of these together still and then cut to final length, but they don’t look horrible. Success!

I now face the daunting task of figuring out how to do the stretchers with their drawbored tenons. Never done anything like that so it will be interesting! Time to watch a bunch of YouTube videos to keep the info fresh! I’ll probably practice on a bunch of scrap first. It may be awhile until my next installment…

This is going to be one killer bench. I’m quite impressed. Keep it up! Good luck with the stretchers.

Have your say...
