I built this bench top for my girlfriend, who recently got into carving. I will eventually create a base for it, but right now she only has room for the top. It is composed of hard maple, glued together with Titebond III. I ended up boring the dog holes by hand because it was easier than battling a drill. Plus it gave me a chance to show off my massive brace and bit forearms. That’s how you win a girl’s heart right there. I finished it with a three part mix of BLO, satin poly and mineral spirits.
