I am building my first workbench. Next week I hope to begin gluing up my top. I have SYP cut and sticked in my garage. After I joint and plane it the final dimensions will be about 1 3/8” x 3 3/4” x 59”. I have a couple questions and was hoping to tap into the experience of those on the site:
First – I was thinking of gluing up the boards in three groups of seven. Is that too many?
Second – Immediately after jointing and planing, and just prior to the glue up, I read it is a good idea to wipe down SYP with acetone. Do you simply wipe the acetone on and then wipe it off? Can I glue right after this step?
Thanks for the help,
