make a cool unique laminated bench.
This is my first instructable so i hope it is up to par, but if not i will work on my technique for the next one.
Might i add the only fasteners used in this project is glue and some wood pegs THAT'S IT.
Well lets get to it.
Step 1: Tools needed/layout
Table saw or skill saw
7/8" forsner or spade bit
I think that is all but i will check as this process goes.
For this project your biggest tool is your mind. Take some time to sit down and figure what size you will have to cut everything.
For this particular bench I took a standard sheet of 1/2" plywood and cut it in to 1.75" x 48" strips. The thicker the plywood the wider the strips can be.
You can vary the size based on the width and height of the bench you want to make. Today i will cut portions down to make a bench roughly 36" long by 18" high. On to the hard work
Step 2: Making the cuts
Once you have your strip width figured out start to cut the sheet into lots and lots of strips. I used a battery powered circular saw which took forever but an electric table saw would probably make it easier.
You can see in the picture and example of the cut strips
