« Part 1: laminated the top Part 2 of workbench series Part 3: working more on the bench »

I messed up actually a little making the top. I originally meant to make in two sections then take it through the planer. however i made the whole width then did a face palm. i flattened one side and glued up the legs. going to make the base and will move on from there

Nice work, just call it practice for flattening the top when it settles and need to be done again in a year.

Whoa! LOVE your trying / jointer plane! My current jointer is a vintage Stanley #7, but I really want to get into wooden planes some day soon.

Have your say...
