This week kicked off my shop cleaning and reorganization initiative. I got started turning my scraps into cutting boards and I replaced the old bench that was under my tool cabinet. Although I still have a lot of scraps to get rid of, the new cabinet is much better than my old bench storage wise. I also started and completed a project that I have been wanting to do for a few years: a live face bench. I’ve had that sawmill off cut in my shop for years now so it feels great to finally give that experiment a try. I also continued putting the final touches on the secretary and it is almost ready for the big reveal.
To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
