Glued Up Benchtop
While the glue was setting up, I marked and cut the legs to length. Next step is cutting the joints. After watching the episode of The Woodwright's Shop where Roy talks about the rising dovetail a few times, as well as a video on youtube where a different person goes through the joint, I am starting to feel confident enough to tackle them. I will admit that I am not looking forward to dealing with the angled mortise and tenons on the back legs. I also find myself wishing for a 6" deep backsaw to cut the joints accurately. Roy's top is only 3" or 4" thick, but he still cut the leg joints with a handsaw. I may go this route.
