« Part 8: Drawbore! Part 9 of Nicholson Bench series Part 10: The Top »

Now that the legs are done I was able to 4S the aprons (I cheated and borrowed a planner from a friend) and then drill the holes on the front Apron.

I glued and screwed the apron as was suggested in the Schwarz’s book that I am building this after.

And here it is with both aprons on and lifted onto her feet.

Thanks for following the posts mafe. I can’t wait to be finished. This week something came up at work and I had to travel to your neck of the woods. The same continent anyway; I’m in Rheinfelden Germany just off the Swiss boarder for a few days while my bench project is at an idle. It is beautiful here though and the wine is excellent.

That sounds like a fine trade, wine and a beautiful place.
The bench can easy wait!
Have a nice time,

Just got caught back up. Wonderful build. This bench intrigues me and mystfies me more than any other style. I may have to build one just to figure them out.

The picture of you using the end assemblies as sawhorses is great.
