Default Re: Shaker(?) Bench Build...

Very cool, Bigfoot. Thanks for taking the time to document the build.

By "wrapped in maple" for the top, do you mean the sides of the benchtop, or the top of the bench? I guess I'd worry that it could separate from the underlying LVL, or not be as strong. On the other hand, a maple top could be easier to flatten.

I'm noticing a distinct lack of Festools in your shop. Should we take up a collection for you? You know - to help out the poor, needy, and Festoolless.
