The size of this bench just hit me in its entirety. This things going to be MASSIVE and holy heavy batman.
Tonight went round two of milling the boards for the top slabs.
Like I previously stated, I was working around a lot of imperfections. Luckily, the front slab will be completely free of visual defects and the back only has two smallish ones. This had been bugging me for two weeks thinking half the top would end up epoxy filled knots but I got lucky/was not totally stupid about the orientation while milling them up. I'm still an inch wide on the rear slab and 3/4 wide on the front but it's too late to plane those down now.
Too attempt and get the grain running in the right way across the slabs, I took the #4 to each board and oriented the grain sweeps the correct way on all but one board that is all wonky. I took notes on the end to keep everything in order.

It's a monster, takes a few seconds to get to full RPM, that's a lot of big wheel to move. The blade that's on there is craptastic, it's a ripping blade. That tooth geometry is terrible for resaw, also the tires might be slipping a touch. When you turn it on, you can hear the power. There's some more cleaning that needs to be done on the outside.
I used compressed sort and cleaned out the caked up sawdust. There's a bit of surface rust I'd like to have cleaned up. It's reassembled and slightly tuned to make a cut.
