The Benchmaker's Apprentice:Rails and Bench-Top
Here is the board that will be used for the top and bottom short rails and the two long rails.
After a lot of sawing, we have some rails. The short boards will be ripped down the middle to be used for the top and bottom short rails.
It took a bit of effort but I got this large piece of ash chopped in half for the bench-top. The piece was just long enough for a six foot bench. Not too shabby.
After only about four hours, I've got some jointed, planed, and square legs, pieces for the split-top, and pieces for the six rails. I'd say that's progress!
