Grandsons, Caleb & Ethan trying out a rustic cedar bench. A friend and I made this one and another one similar to it. He had ordered a new drill mounted tenon cutter, so we were just tinkering around with some sawmill slabs of red cedar. We used the 1 1/2” tenon cutter for the legs. The cutter worked fairly well, but he’ll likely build a jig to hold the drill in order to make consistent tenon cuts. We threw the two benches together within a couple of hours. Thanks to my friend operating a Woodmizer band mill, I have access to an incredible supply of materials to build all types of projects. I’m working on a porch swing for my wife next. The going is slow right now due to recovering from surgery on my left arm. Hopefully a few more weeks and I’ll be back to making sawdust.
