Learn how to craft this signature joint quickly and easily with a bit of help from your router. Then, get ready to tackle the workbench's first glue-up. Episode 4: Glue Up the Base As with any furniture project, glue-up happens in stages. Learn how to custom fit the workbench's plywood panels and drawer runners as the base is dry-fit and assembled. Episode 5: Benchtop A solid benchtop provides a firm work surface as well as the added weight required for handplaning.
