Today is a rainy day… too cold for Buenos Aires… so the shop is VERY cold and untidy… I’m advancing a little on my table saw upgrade, but while the family sleeps I will share a project that was a pleasure to build.
2 years ago, I had some stock left form the outdoor swing (in the third photo, both together), so I planned the bench, I took online plans form popular woodworking, and started.
Again no power tools at that time, the taped legs were cut by hand saw, and from the left out I cut strips of wood to make the back… that was so fun! I learned how to hand saw! and learned some patience too :D.
80% of the tenon and mortises were done using chisels, then by the end of the project I got a router so I could finish it a little faster (no better, I didn’t know how to use it well and my jig skills where (are) lousy…
So this is it, Im happy of the outcome, the bench es REALLY heavy.
