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!
