I knocked this up today and half of yesterday. I wanted a good surface for chopping dovetails etc. Wanted to be a little different to all the others. It is a solid beast. Nearly 50m of 100×50mm Radiate pine. 1500L x 900H x 700W x 90 Thick.

Wow, you jointed and planed 50 mtrs of pine and got this far quicker than it takes me to find my pencil !
It’s a great way to make a box joined bench. Will be solid and look good.
Here they make solid oak houses using a similar method, except they use a kind of compound dovetail join.
