The concept is based on Charles Neil’s Five Board Bench video which you can find here.
This bench is made from rough Knotty Alder. If you look at any of my other projects you will see that I like nice clean, simple lines. I think it had that.
This is the first time I primarily used hand planes in one of my projects and I have to say it went fairly quickly. I just got a Veritas Bevel Up Jointer with the fence and I have to say it was a complete joy to use.
Overall the project took about 3 days in total to build.
My wife said two things when she saw it:
1) “That’s the fastest project you have ever built.”
2) “Can I have it?”
