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!
