« Part 6: So, its been 2 years... Part 7 of handtool workbench series Part 8: Plowin ahead.. »

So yesterday mornin 6am i had this

A rough cut true 4×8x12’4” beam of douglas fir

So i cut it in half, or close to half, two 67” lengths

Scrubbed, and jointed, fine tuned and made a sammich, with some glue in the middle. With aome clamps to keep it together.

So this mornin i stropped up the scrubber grabbed a chisel, removed most the clamps , flipped it so i can look at its underdroopers.

Had some very hard knots to chip out..

Tried to pull a couple loose ones.. one actually did..

And time for a scrubbin..

Gonna have some sore shoulders by end of the day..

Look, all the planes are pointing sort of North. Winters coming.
