I finally completed my bench. My final steps.
Last weekend we had great weather and I could not resist to do some work outside. Inside is crowded and circular saw produces a lot of uncontrolled dust and I planed to produce finishing. Here you clearly see that I actually make use of scrap material, so no trips to buy and reducing clutter in my garage. Win-win situation!
Preparation for cutting edges of bench top. You see shop made cutting guide, probably everybody makes one for circular saw. I love it and works perfectly.
Gluing edges to the top.
Some close up. You see that red oak edge? I reuse leftover from my hardwood flooring.
Edging completed and dry. Everything ready for finishing.
Could not resist to show my proud in mitered angles. I think it is made well. Huh?
While the top is drying, I can work on shelving inside of the bench. Who is that guy working in my garage?
And another view.
My recently acquired machinist vise found it’s home ;-)
Just excited and can not stop :-)
Well, back to business. I used t-nuts in the bottom of the top to attach the vise.
And that is how the top attached to the rest of bench, just bolts.
Back to next thing.
