Well I finally completed the Sawbench last night. I made some modifications to the traditional design, including screws instead of cut nails (after trying them initially). It’s not perfect and in some ways an ugly beast, but I ripped a 24″ board and did a few cross cuts and it will definitely do the job. Next up is the packing box from Joiner & Cabinet Maker. I will continue my education in working pine boards with hand tools, and the Sawbench will help make my cuts more square.
