I need to drill the holes for the bench dogs and add a few more coats of finish.
I followed a recipe in either a shop notes / wordsmith mag. Its beeswax dissolved in turpentine, then mixed with boiled linseed oil. Sure makes my garage stink.
The bench isn’t a full 3 1/2” thick all the way across. I glued up 1 3/4” square strips. In the rows where the bench dog holes will be drilled, I glued an additional strip to double up the thickness to support the dogs better.
I’m guessing it weighs around 175 lbs, possibly more. I weighed 130 lbs before I added the stretchers, apron, and vise.
