Nicholson Bench Project Update – Cross stop complete
The mill of time grinds slowly, but exceedingly fine.
So we’re old and we’re slow. But we finely got the cross stop finished (except for a coat of BLO) and in place. It’s made out of walnut, because that’s what we had. It has two 1/2″ thick cheeks with intermittent 3/8″ spacers placed over the leg sets and cross members, made long enough to accommodate several steps, which will allow the stop to be positioned 1/4″ or 1/2″ above the surface of the bench to hold material in place while planing across the grain (cross planing). The steps were simply “rubbed” with Titebond I, so no clamping was necessary.
