In my quest to use more hand tools I have finally built myself a sawbench. The joinery is probably more heavy duty than it needs to be. All wedged through tenons, but I figured I should practice some joinery as I built it. Started with rough sawn scrap lumber and used all hand tools. I’m getting quicker with each project not to mention its alot more fun and rewarding IMHO cutting wood by hand than with electricity.
I haven’t decided on whether or not to finish it. If i do, it will be with boiled linseed oil. I’m afraid the boards will slip to much on the top while in use. Any comments and suggestions are always welcome.
