« Part 1: The plan Part 2 of Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! series Part 3: CLICK.... HUMMM ..... THUNK! »

OK If you look at the cut list from the first post those 2×12x12’ are sliced up into a bunch of 33” long chunks and ripped in half and then again into 5 1/4” (for slop) The Tenon is achieved by tacking a block of Plywood (mine is 2 1/2”) wide at the Ends of two of the inner boards in the stack your going to glue up.

I then Set up a stop in my miter Guage and choped 2 1/2 Off the outboard pieces and glued and clamped them…

This is the setup before glue.. with the blocks of Plywood tacked in with 16 guage brads -

Then you clamp like crazy! This was taken after a hour or so… I removed the end clamps and popped off the Plywood so that it would not become part of the project.

I then Cleaned out the Top and bottom with a shoulder plane and block plane as needed and used my smoother to put a Chamfer along the bottom edge (this is help you move the beast if you need to with out chipping the edges out)

My table saw ends up being my assembly table/workbench all the time – as my ‘real’ bench ends up covered in crap! :)

I kinda liked the “Washer” cart in the First picture background.. Anyway I have progressed and will post about the table and chopping the Mortises (with help). Posting as as soon as I get done seeing if there were questions while I was away.
