Different views of shop, 12’ x23’ x 10’ ceiling
I’ve moved the bulk of the power tools, DC and air filtration system to another location (see Bat Cave Blog)
Bench is now done,it started as a 5” thick x 19” x 83” drop from a laminated beam
It is roughly copied from Stumpy’s plans , very heavy, total coast of build including the hold fasts and used vice is less that $70.00.
The top got a good scrubbing with my Union #5 Scrub Plane with a cambered iron, then a few coats of water based oil modified poly. It still has lots of scars and character but a very smooth work surface.
I’ve attached pictures of the bench, plane and the iron.
To be continued
