« Part 6: Legs Are Made to Stand Part 7 of Roubo-Moxon Bench Build series Part 8: I Don't Need No Stinkin' Lathe »

I don’t know what is making me procrastinate on this bench. I think maybe it was the hand planing that was a part of this next step. Well anyway, it wasn’t that hard – I just had to make the tenons on the long stretchers a bit narrower so they’d fit nice and snug in the mortises. Not too hard.

Next step – whittling some pegs for drawboring the stretchers, and at the same time getting a start on laminating the benchtop!
