I have read the two books by Chris Schwarz and am still not sure what to build.
At the moment I'm mostly a power tool guy, but hope to learn more about using hand tools and develop the necessary skills to make good quality furniture, boxes, cabinets,etc..
LOML gave me a Veritas® Low-Angle Jack Plane which I’m told will work great to flatten some of the wider stock that doesn't fit my 6" Jointer. My current bench (4' x 8' x 3/4 sheet of MDF with 2x4 legs that serves as out feed/assembly table) doesn't give me the clamping capability required to use it properly.
I’m thinking that I should build a smaller out feed table and a separate bench that can serve as an assembly surface. I'm interested in getting some advice on what type of bench to build and am interested in knowing what other wood workers use for a work bench.
