So this isn’t really a project project. Just a little shop thingy on the way to a project. I’m working on a dining room table and the top is made up of 8/4 walnut slabs. Gorgeous wood. But there’s quite a bit of edge jointing and they’re too cumbersome and long for the jointer, so I’m doing it the fun way. But my $99 HF bench is a little ill-equipped so I had to make a quick deadman to support the boards while I joint them. Just some 2×4s, some 1/2” ply, screwed together and clamped to the legs, then a shim holds the board tight.
One downside: it blocks the drawers from opening. I figured this out when I clamped them on, put a board in, shimmed it tight, and then went to get my plane. In the drawer.
