Ready for benchwork

My friend Chris Abbott came over this evening and we got a lot done.

We loaded his truck with some wood from my old layout. He can use it. I can’t.

We got the last of the old layout out to the garage, making way for the new.

And we ripped 3.5″ boards out of 30 of the 40 finger joint pine boards I picked up for the framing. This gives us a good start on the framing itself, with the leftovers – just under 2″ – perfect for risers, braces, etc.

Benchwork goes up next week. Very exciting!

Chris and I then retired to Harbord House* for pints and a meal – which, as I’ve said many times on this blog, is an example of the balance between operations and socializing that is one of my objectives with this layout.

So far, it’s working!
