Tuesday, Day 8 of our workbench class: Scraped each piece that was going to be glued on but that couldn’t be easily accessed after gluing. Next we glued on the outside edges of the bench, the end-caps and dovetailed pieces. We constantly double checked to make sure nothing was glued on backwards or upside-down–easy to do with all these symmetrical-looking pieces! It seems like the further along you get into a project the scarier it is to do the next step–I guess because the risk of error is much higher!! After we glued the top, we began planing and scraping all the components for the base in preparation for glue-up. Finished the day by gluing up each leg assembly.
