I bought this bench used, made of Douglas Fur with two Rockler vices. The main work went into the flattening of the top, which I did with No. 7 and No. 4 planes, followed by orbital sanding to an 80 grit. Some wood putty had to be used, but I don’t know if it was because of the sharpness of my irons or for the nature of Douglas Fur that caused some grain tearing. Afterwords, I used poly on the base and bottom shelf, followed by Formby’s Tung Oil on the top.
