Workbench Part 6

images: 
Tenons are cut to slide on the top. To drawbore the leg braces, I drilled the mortises through, inserted the tenons, tapped the same brad point bit to mark the tenons and then drilled the tenons 1/16" tighter than the mortise holes.

Workbench Part 5

images: 
It's exciting to fit the base joints. I've been planning how to build the top, which will slide onto tenons cut into the tops of the legs. It will probably be the common setup with front vise and tail vise, just reversed so that it will fit into the place in the basement directly to the left of the fridge. I prefer the tail vise designs that use wooden guides and an inexpensive bench screw to the fancier and much more expensive steel rail setups.

Workbench Part 1

images: 

Last winter, a very generous friend of a friend let us haul away a truckload of old oak timbers.

The timbers came in a few lengths all over 1m and with varying conditions at the ends. Some had fancy looking old joinery that was still viable and some were decomposed.

A little TLC revealed lots of very usable oak. These will be the legs of my new workbench.
