    The old one is full, this is the new one.

    The first one is here:

    Let’s pick up on the shop improvements where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table for the mitre saw. Then add an area to extend the work surface, which will be a convenient place to add drawers to in the future. Then I get everything back in place, with a few changes along the way.

    The new finished wall came together very well. I like the torsion box idea.

    The torsion top came out good. It is really solid. To you standing on it.

    Facing the consequences of inexperience with working with slabs this big and a bit of carelessness I carry on and get the slabs ready to join them edge to edge. I decided by the end of it that since I have no real “plan” other than a picture in my head I will push on through and fix things a bit later. Long hot work but they finally get to the point where I can start joining the slabs in the next video.

    That’s been a long haul, eh, Jim? Looking really good now.

    I am sure all the hard work will be worth it. It will be a nice sturdy bench to work on in your shop

    Finally! The slabs come together as one unit. My first shot at using a draw bore loose tenon joint. It took some time and experiments, along with a lot of groaning from the tenons. They fit pretty tight.

    Those tenons are really snug. I found myself pulling with you getting the joint closed up.

    Awesome, I’ve only seen drawbores on old post and beam or equivalent, I never thought to use them with loose tenons, very nice.

    Another nicely done video, I love the work with the bit and brace. Who need power tools when you have hand tools.

    I enjoyed this video. I like that you used draw bore loose tenons. It was nice to see you the brace & bit.

    I have 2 Braces and I bought so bits. I just need to get using them.

    It changes as time goes on, you’ll see…lol. Right now after all the work that you have not seen yet, it is just over 120 lbs.

    I like it too. 3/4″ bits seem the hardest to find. I have a drawer full of bits I have to go through and see which ones are good and which ones have to go. Yard sale finds. The one I am using still had the wax coating on it from original manufacture.

    Yard sale finds like bits with the wax still on them make me want to try going to yard sales again- but I always seem too busy / and/or frustrated by so much crap … I need more patience I guess.
