Agreed, I’m not a fan of the big box stores, the employees usually hate their jobs and or don’t know anything. The old guys seem to know stuff, but they are few and far between.
I’m excited for sure! I didn’t get to do this stuff when I was a kid, my dad was too busy and tired and I didn’t get it in school either. I’ve always wanted to learn, I’ve tried a little in the past, but didn’t know what I was doing and got discouraged. So needless to say I love the fact I found Paul and this community, both have been a massive help.
Too bad Paul is in the UK, I would love to take his courses in person.
Oh cool! Yeah, this is a first for me, I figured I would get my bench done and then move on to the many projects I have planned. I’m am IT guy downtown Seattle, so I don’t have a lot of time and or woodworking skill, but I love woodworking with hand tools.
So did you find Lowes had a better stock? Did you laminate the Home Depot stuff or the Lowes stuff? Did you plane at all (gave up and just tried to glue it)? Or did you plane it? Also, were the corners (the entire length) rounded on yours? I’m really excited about building my first bench, just to see it sitting there will be a wonder, let alone using it.
Have you noticed cupping or twisting in all the moisture here?
Yes, I have many questions. 😉 Thanks for any help (checking your blog out now)
