Anyone willing to chat about their experience or thoughts on making this bench with American construction grade lumber?
Because it is what I have available, and because I am on a tight budget, I plan to build most of it out of 2x4s, even though I know that that is going to mean a lot more work planing and edge gluing to come up with a sufficiently wide wellboard and set of aprons. Ugh… oh well. Just more opportunity to develope my skills!
Any thoughts on altering some of the dimensions from the available plans and drawings, in order to make this project more friendly to these materials? For example, I’m thinking maybe skinnier legs so that they could be made from two 2x4s laminated together?
Any guidance would be appreciated!
