In this part, I glue up the main portion of the top, that sucker is heavy. I also mill the parts for the legs and stretchers, lay them out and cut the core mortise and tenon joinery.

It’s a great thing to see, once I get it finished I want to put the older one beside this. Btw, I didn’t forget to pm you about my handplane, I did some minor tune up and it works real well now, I’ll have video to prove it in a future video.
