Introduction: The Holy Grail
i was fortunate enough to get a knock on my door , which was the vicor who also loves woodworking.
any way he drove me to a church which was being renovated.
and there was timber everywhere , and the vicar said just help yourself .
,so not being greedy i took what i needed to make a bigger bench.
now i measured up and sawed what i needed to make a bigger bench.
Step 1: Glued and Kreg Joinery
now i placed the bar clamps out.
layed 2 lengths on the clamps.
then using wood glue making sure the timber is square all round.
then tightened the lengths of timber on the bar clamps .
and let it bond
Step 2: Shellac
with the 3rd length.
i used my kreg pocket hole jig which works like a dream.
then i placed the pocket hole filler knocked it in snugly.#
then added 3 coats of button shellac.
and now i have the bench i have been wanting for a long time.
thanks for looking.
take care and have a good day
