    Are those kilned wood?
    I have a factory near by that cuts wood from spruce trees and sold them
    without drying time, they use them for making the rooftops in houses.
    Is a bad idea to build with not kilned dry wood?

    Good video! I was taught, when laminating, always to join a heartwood face
    to a heartwood face, and end grain pattern ideally forming “S” shapes.

    Love all your videos you’re always a good teacher on every method you show
    which is so helpful for people like me who are trying to learn.
    Side note for viewers…
    I like how people who are looking at videos on how to make a work bench are
    telling a professional of 40+ years he’s doing it wrong. Seriously

    traditional saw horses

    Good catch. One more clamp, ooo I mean four more. 🙂

    Paul, I’m just trying to consolidate a final bill of materials for this
    project and I’m seeing some differences between your videos and books and
    what you list as the dimensions. I’m a subscriber on your masterclass site
    and I started a forum thread here:
    My last comment shares my very slight frustration, could you perhaps shed
    some light?

    You can look for some carpentery in the neighborhood. Smal garage workshop
    or manufacture is no important. Important is planer machenie. Some times
    sawmill have a planer, some times people from sawmill know place where you
    can plane wood. I know, hand tools work is great, but is no simply without
    experience make big project.

    that’s a mess on the ground that seems really hard to clean later, and
    also, if it winds or rains… oh boy…

    prima di fare un tavolo era meglio costruirsi un mazzuolo

    Harbor Freight and rockler carry them much cheaper.

    Paul, can you use recycle wood used for stud walls from old homes, assuming
    one pulled out all the nails? Will planing this wood cause too many issues
    for the blade? Have you tried this approach for any of your workbenches?

    Dear Sir, Good afternoon from Brazil. I’m crazy for projects in wood, but I
    have no tools and much less money to buy them. Enroll me in all channels
    for research projects but I see that the tools to run them are expensive
    and difficult to access. If someone, for some reason, stopped working with
    wood and want to donate their tools, please let me know.

    These are made in China clamps and are sold under various distributor
    names. If you google aluminum clamps or alluminium clamps you will find
    them. The ones I have are called Sigma.

    Nice work there! Someone can also use two pieces of wood and a smaller
    clamp on each edge to flush the pieces. Place one piece of wood on top and
    the other on the bottom and place vertically the small clamp to grab both.

    Would be nice to show the completed workbench at the very start of the
