Shaping Up

I spent a few hours in the shed today working on the bench . The back legs needed to be a bit more elegant , so I cut a shallow curve out of them both and blended this in with the spokeshave . This gives a better look I think . More housings were cut for the backrest so that the back legs fit nicely and it gives me a chance to use one of my favourites.  My record (No 71) router plane this gives me a nice clean flat joint and ensures that both housings are the same depth . I put it all together with a couple of clamps and wedged up the back to see how it was shaping up :)


  1. That's a nice bench! I believe that it would even hold ME up!

  2. I believe it could hold quite a few folks, thanks Gorges :)
