New Yankee Workshop Workbench update – benchtop & tray parts
I made the benchtop out of 2 pieces of 1/2″ plywood laminated together, cut the tray bottom to size and got the groves cut for the tray to fit into.
Here it is ready for some glue.
I put on a generous amount of glue, put the second piece on, put in some 1″ screws in the middle and then clamped the hell out of it. I am hoping that this will make the top conform to the 2×4’s underneath.
Yep, I used almost all of my clamps for this!
I cut the tray bottom down to its finish size on the table saw.
I set my dado stack for 1/2″ wide and 1/4″ deep.
I set the fence to cut a groove 3″ from the top of the board.
The grooves have been cut!
I think that I am going to have to notch the plywood bottom for the tool tray.
I marked the notch on the plywood
and cut it out with my cordless jigsaw that I totally suck at using.
