Its been a a long few years in highschool and a solid maple workbench will be my final project. Ive been designing it for months and finally received the wood 90 BF of 8/4 hard maple. My portion being the 7 lighter colored boards on the left. Let the bench begin!

Starting to shape up , i should mention the finish on these boards was fantastic , they had warped some but the faces were nearly flat and already smoothed making it much less work to joint flat surfaces. The smaller boards were cut to rough length and then an edge jointed , split dead half on the table saw and jointed a face and then the edge again to maintain a right angle, all the peices were given a small planer pass on both sides to make everything parallel. After that everything was laminated and jointed again. Following that i planed then all to the proper size. My bench design is to have obviously two legs on each side with a endcap to accept tenons from the legs. the top will be fastened to the leg assembly by 3 veritas bench bolts of each side.
