  1. I have a kind of unique situation. About 2 years ago I bought a workbench that had an old school oak butcher block style top. This top is 8'x3'x1.75". I would like to try and turn this into a top that I can use with bench dogs and heavier pounding for hand tool use. I will be rebuilding the base and making it about a 6'x3' top, may even go down to 5' in length. Here's my question. Could I cut this top into say 4" wide strips width wise and turn them on their sides then re-glue? This would essentially give me an end grain style bench, but I'm not sure if this would be a good thing or not. I will upload pics of the current top soon. What do you guys think?
  2. That is very nicely done. I've been promising my wife I'd make her a tablet holder for a while. I know you said you spent a lot of time on it, but I may have to attempt this as it would blow her away.
  3. Awesome table. I am actually in the planning stages to build one very similar, just in a regular 4'x8' size. I do have a question though. For all the pieces of wood, did you just glue them all together, or did you use another method to help keep them aligned and tight? I'm not sure if you would really want to use dowels, dominos, or even screws to help the glue.
  4. Love the bench. This looks like a great model for what I want to build.
  5. I can't help this year as I don't have my shop setup yet, but if you do this again I'm in for a couple ornaments.
  6. Looking very nice. Great size and execution.
