« Part 3: Things are starting to come together now. Part 4 of Kids Workbench Build series Part 5: Glue Ups and Legs! »

When you have the attention span of a 1 year old things move a bit slow.. good thing the boy keeps me on task :D

We made it to the big orange store and picked up most of what is needed for the vises..

Then yesterday I snuck outside to glue up the padouk strip so we can get to work on the endcaps and skirt etc..

Today the boy and I got it out of the clamps and got to work cleaning up the glue joint and making everything coplaner..

Then some cleanup..

And here is the rough mockup for the rest of the top. Coming along now… just about time for the base planing to start.

Till next time.. hammer on!

This is going to be a great little bench. Nice to see the little guy having fun in the shop.
