Like many others I am now making my first workbench (moving up from a B&D Workmate)…. I have finished my leg assemblies first, as I had some pieces of pine wood left over from some other projects… and although it took me a long time, and my M&T joints are a bit ragged (but still quite tight) I am pleased with progress so far. Today I ordered the rest of the wood from a local timber yard… Being in France I was offered Épicéa (Norwegian Spruce)… Which seems quite similar to pine from what I can read.
My question here is that I would like to incorporate some strips of Cherry left from a previous project, and some unknown hard wood from an old piece of furniture that was otherwise destined for the dump….will this cause any problems in the laminated top. I don’t see why, but would like to check the wisdom of the forum.
