The workbench continues. Finally got some great red and white oak from the Asheville mountains, and I’m ready to complete it.
First, need to notch out a spot for the parallel guide on one of the legs. I made the first cuts on the bandsaw, then chopped out the waste with a chisel.
Then the huge leg tenons that will fit into the workbench top.
Then the mortises for the stretchers.
Which are drawbored and pinned.
And set #1 is complete!
While working, I found this date scribbled in my great-grandfathers tool chest. 1936!
