« Part 1: Drawing done... Part 2 of My workbench series Part 3: frame together and top almost done »

Well I was able to start working on the bench. There was a generous donation of a 2×10. Which I have ripped into my 2×2 frame pieces. I started on the Router side. And not having many clamps and not a tone of experience with say non symetrical face for drawers and such. I cut out the drawer holes and router door hole. Yes there is not a straight line to be had, and they will be hidden by drawer face later… lesson learned…

Have to finally break down and buy a hand plane too. just an eighth out on the plywood and frame. So I think a hand plane will do the job.. How bad can it go???

have the other router side wall done.. and now working on the far table wall..

Using 3/4 plywood. And the interior walls that really wont be shown using a rougher one. To keep costs low.

a bit at a time…
