Well, tonight I went to the big orange store and picked up the lumber for my bench base: (8) 2×10x10’ “premium” construction lumber. It took a while picking through the pile to find something approaching reasonable. My plan is to rip them and plane them tomorrow on my new Steel City planer (not the spiral blade version). This is to prep them for glue up.
I plan to laminate the legs boards with a finish cross section of about 7×4 1/8”. When I laminate the legs I will build in mortices for the cross members.
I also found the manual for my cheapo Craftsman tablesaw and found it is a bit better than I’d dare hope. I assumed it didn’t have any adjustability to it, but it actually does have some so I can do a propper saw setup tomorrow to when I install the new diablo rip blade on it. It even can take a dado which I didn’t expect.
Hopefully some pictures tomorrow or soon anyhow….
-- I do this for fun.
