« Part 8: Is Lee Valley great or what? Part 9 of Workbench series Part 10: Neighbors showed up and the top is on »

there is our Briard, Baxter checking out the top.

The base is done.

One of 10 wedged tenon joints

Well the base is done and the top is ready so if I can find a few neighbors it is time to flip the top over and put it on the base. this is really exciting. I will actually have a workbench.

looks very sable and stout! I like the detail curves on the legs, and the tenons also look great.
