« Part 5: Handles: Part 1 Part 6 of Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench series Part 7: The Vices »

After the glue up of the bench top I moved onto some initial hand flattening. With the top in two halves and then again as a single piece; I took to the number 5 and number 7 stanleys (and a lot of sharpening). My new veritas straight end came into it’s own at this point.

Recognizing that it might be some time until i’m up to ‘finishing’ the top, I gave it a quick sand and a thin layer of shellac.

I reckon you are going to have forearms like POPEYE.
That is coming along nicely… can’t wait for it to be finished… although I am enjoying the journey as much as you are…
