« Part 1: The legs... Part 2 of Workbench base in progess.... series Part 3: Trouble with the first foot and legs... »

Here is the next installment of the workbench base WIP. The feet are glued and cleaned up and I’ve drilled out excess material in the mortises. I’ve got 3 out of 4 mortises cleaned up and the fit it pretty good. I am going to use draw pegs to draw the joints nice and tight.

It is coming along nicely Mike. How big will the bench be when it is done?

The top is an old maple pattern makers top and it is 2 7/8” x 36” x 69”. The top alone probably weigh 150-200 lbs.
