I’m nearly done with my workbench project, I promise! I’ll break down the build soon with plenty of videos and explanations as to the whys and wherefores. I wanted to get the project done before I start sharing it because I hope it will enhance things a bit, seeing the finished article at the start that is. It’ll also give me some time to generate content for the next project with the finished article to show right at the start. Time will tell if that’s a good idea or not.
The downside is that in the short term my blog posts have been too infrequent for my liking. So here’s a simple process I’ve been using to check the accuracy of the bearers that support the bench top. String lines. Straight edges are clearly a good choice here too but if you don’t have one at hand, a string line can be a great help. With a light rubbing of chalk it can also be useful for pinging a straight line on live edge stock (or as I say it, “waney edge”).
Back to the process.
