Workbench like a ship-in-a-bottle
Building my new workbench with a 8' laminated top in my tight, low-ceiling basement is a bit like building a ship-in-a-bottle.
Cutting, jointing and planing the 10' rough boards for the workbench's top within the low ceiling and vertical steel support posts ends up being a real dance (similar to my post about long clamps).
Funny how building this new bench that will allow me to use more hand-tool techniques has required more power tools than any project that I have done lately. LOTS of ripping and planing.
I can't say that this project is a lot of fun (although it is not difficult or complex), but I look forward to the end result.
