I started on building my french/ Chris Schwarz style bench. I realized that I didn't have enough oak to make it so I decided to make the top out of vertical laminations of Arauca Ply wood. Sunday I cut 4 sheets of it into 4" wide boards. In the evenings this week I glued up 42 of the boards into 6" wide sections so I can run them through the jointer and planer before I glue up all of it into the whole top. I'll have to take the camera over tomorrow and get some pics.
