Here in Eaton County, Michigan, Mother Nature has fired the first salvo in the winter war. It is in the low 50s, completely overcast, and pouring rain. All in all, a terrible fall day outside, but a perfect day to spend some time in the shop.
My wife is heading to Cleveland this weekend for a library event so I'm hoping to get some progress made on my new workbench. I'm laminating together a Roubo style 8' long benchtop from 16" x 3/4" x 4" hard maple drawer sides that I got really cheap. Perhaps I'm a masochist for doing it this way, but I'm about halfway through the process. I've used almost a whole gallon of Titebond to date. It should make a rock-solid bench when I'm done; the first half of the top weights in at 150 pounds!!
