Woke up early this morning to do some more work on my workbench when I got a wild hair and decided to knock out a saw bench real quick to help me along.
Dug out a piece of 8/4 oak that had a split on one end and an extra piece of oak that was going to be on my bench top but wasn’t needed.
Took a bit of work to get the top flat with my workbench still in an nonfunctional state but I got it close.
Ironically enough.. just like a workbench build, you need a saw bench to build a saw bench.. whodathunk?
This took about 5 hours to make using mostly hand tools (the band saw was used to remove the waste from the joints in the top). I was going utilitarian rustic with this which was nice not worrying about appearance too much but I think it came out looking decent.
Legs are drawbored and glued.
Here are some bonus build pics..
