« Part 2: Day 2 The cross cut jig Part 3 of My First Workbench series Part 4: Day 4: Just Plane Fun »

OOOH I had fun today! After a few days off visiting relatives, I was finally afforded time back in the shop today and spent that time cutting the 2×4s to make up the bench top. I broke out the new miter-saw (well, new as of 2 years ago…) cut all 16 2×4s to rough length (73”). Once I finish the glue up, I’ll trim the top to length with the circular saw.

Here’s the result:

Also got my hand planes in shape and ready for working on the bench in the next few days.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
