    Looks great, are you going to fit some drawers underneath?

    Looking good, I’d be proud if I’d made that. I see the plan’s gone out the window though!

    If the top is still being made to the plan, I’m interested to know what the intention is behind the cross-grain ends, and how they’ll be attached to the rest of the top?

    Thanks guys.

    yes once I get the bench all finished I will be filling it out w drawers underneath.

    no the top ended up being 2×4 s lamina te d, 8 total for a 14 width. The bottom has housing dados that fit it to the top bearers. In a day or so I will screw from underneath.
