Well, here are some photos from the first glue up:

The Schwarz said that pine is resinous and resists glue so acetone helps.

The roller idea is the Renaissance Woodworker’s—and i like it!

Probably should have waited till it was a bit more dry and firm…

Also, i decided to see what could be done with the botched stretchers.

From Roubo SLumber
Cutting 4” off half of my bottom stretchers to make two 2” tenons when laminated; note the Wood Whisperer pencil. And as i type this i am actually wearing a WW t-shirt!

New blade for saw

Making the cut with my guide from the Columbus WW show in January (but i couldn’t get the handle to snap all the way down…)

From Roubo SLumber
Sneak peak of bottom stretcher (i am thinking to do the tenons but with a bolt through so i can knock them down. Or should i do a lap joint?)

You’re the best Dave! Seriously, don’t trouble yourself. I am thinking something like this.

You’re on your way to a great bench. My MVP tool in my shop. That little roller gets a workout with this top too. Great work and I too love that pink scroll saw.

Haha! A nauler that says Susie! I did paint my saw, yes. I am just hoping i never have to take it in to be serviced. Could be embarrassing. Though there is also little chance of getting it mixed up with other people’s, though!
Shannon-i can’t tell you how many times i refer to your blog-it’s so helpful. Thanks so much.
