I have been working with hand tools nearly exclusively for the past two years but have really struggled with some of my sawing operations. I lack a proper workbench and workholding. While that is on my list to build I decided to start with the basics and built this sawbench after a Christopher Scwarz article. I modified the bench using a 2×10 instead of a 2×6 which resulted in a wider top and a longer bench overall. I really liked using the cut nails in the project which went together very quickly. Drilling the pilot holes for the cut nails was the only powertool I used in this project (I need to get an eggbeater drill and a brace). I haven’t taken it for a test drive yet but will soon.
