  1. Jay, I love the bench! Started laminating the legs for mine today. Will be a little thinner top. You wouldn't happen to have the plans for the router edge guide would you?

  2. Question: instead of mortising out the top to accept the legs afterwards, wouldn't it have been easier to plan out the leg location/thickness of the legs while making the top and leave gaps in the top that the legs could just slip right into? Seems that would be a lot easier than trying to router and hand chisel out the openings. Just a thought.

  3. I must tell you, Jay, your story reminds me a lot of my own. I know where you’ve been, I know where you are going. It’s an amazing road you’ve traveled. You inspire me to set loftier woodworking goals. Keep it coming. Love ya, man.

  4. Gorgeous little table.  I have a question however.  Less about the table and more about the tools.  I have seen several videos thus far where people say, "you can do this with manual tools or power tools…", and yet have no idea how you would do all that with a hand saw and do you just use a plane in place of the joiner (not even sure what that is!).

    I apologize if it seems like a fool's question, however  limited budget, limited space and being fairly novice as I have not had a place or opportunity to really exploit any hidden skills I may have with woodworking since middle school …

    It is sad as I love real wood verses plastics or metals in my environment (outside of course my love for my computing devices which require those materials!).

  5. That is a really solid looking build, I'd be interested in seeing a follow up to see how the pine is holding up.

  6. You have probably been asked before but what router bit are you using for cutting out the holes for the legs on the table top? Is it a 4” length of cut or just a long shank so you can extend it out further?

    This is cool but creepy af at the same time lol
    I think i would be more comfortable with a voiceover of you talking over the sped up footage,
    It also makes me shift my focus from you (standing and talking) to you working on the bench,
    rather than me keeping my focus completely on the work you do on the bench as i listen to your explanation.
    Just my 2c

  8. Not sure if you’re following this still, but could these plans be easily adapted if I wanted to make my table 4’ x 8’?

  9. Great job on building a beautiful, functional, no- nonsense workbench. I think I’m gonna go with this design. Thank you!

  10. …nice use of video editing techniques to put yourself in the video… 🙂 appreciate the explanations given as to how you do things when it comes to a build… great videos…!

  11. I know you said anyone could do this, but with my disabilities I would really struggle. That’s why at the moment I use one of these cheap eBay benches which I can move in my small workshop. I’m sure there must be a workaround where I initially glue up much smaller pieces or something to make this bench. Or even use smaller dimensioned timber as well, this bench is the one I want to make but I refuse to ask for help. This is a hobby I have to do, not done for me though if you want to send your twin and sometimes triplet over to England I would be willing to make an exception.
