This is my second run with this design. It went much faster, had less problems with the build and I’m very happy with this wood (LAUREL)

Thanks, Diego! I am moving from Minneapolis to Santa Fe, a distance of about 1200 miles. No shop there, and I will be hiring a contractor to build it once I get all the needed permits, so hopefully I will have a shop by the end of the year.

I patched a threshold at the house I’m selling a couple weeks ago, and today used my “emergency” block plane to make a door fit correctly and to shorten a shelf so it will fit in humid as well as dry weather. Projects to get the house ready to sell.

Once we’re back in Santa Fe, I need to repair two antique dressers which were damaged in the move, plus get the shop built. I will likely be using my low bench and minimal hand tools for small jobs around the house.

Yes lovely little bench. I’m interested to hear how you joined the legs to the top? Any chance to get some overall dimensions?
Great work
Kind regards

Hi Diego
I had a good read over your blog, very very nice. Its great how the wood finished in relation to how it was at the start of the project. Very nice.
I also recently built and used the same sort of seat rounding jig for a set of stools.
Great work and I,ve saved in my favorites to have a go at later on.
Regards
Anthony

Thank you Anthony. I set out to make only one, then made another. Its easy and I like how it looks.
I did see your projects and I liked your wood combinations. I take no credit of the jig to make the form of the seat, I put the details from where I took the ideas.
