« Part 2: Starting the bench top part 2 Part 3 of WBBN's Bench Top series Part 4: The end »

Well I didn’t do too much today,

un clamped everything and did some squareness checks.

Side 1

Side 2

Side 3

there is about 3mm of out of square, I can only assume this is so because I have extended the fence out to its max.

and opposite

I needed to remove the out of square and did so by a off cut of wood as a shim taped to the edge and then carefully resawing both sides

This corrected it as much as I was game to do.

Another final squareness check, the results were now found to be acceptable

The corner edges looked a little lethal so they had to go

Next was radiusing the corners and beginning of final sanding. The disk sander was used to complete this
followed by a general 40 Grit all over.

Then finally bit of wood filler was needed on a few cracks and gaps

-- Regards Rob

Still, progress is progress. Some days simply putting all the clamps away feels like a big accomplishment.
