I was having trouble using a hand plane to flatten my workbench top. The plane was having tear-out, and despite trying a backbevel, the blade continued to tear out. This is my first time trying a hand plane, I basically don’t know what I’m doing. I decided to try the router sled method to flatten it.
I’ll be assembling the base of my new Roubo workbench. This is pretty exciting, as it’s been a long road getting this far, with a lot of new skills I needed to learn, such as planing and jointing, and my first mortise and tenon joints. It’s been a bunch of pieces that didn’t look like much, but now I’ll finally be putting it together! I’m a little nervous too, about gluing all the parts, getting them together and getting all the drawbored dowels into the tenons with plenty of glue too.
