To do woodwork well, I need a decent bench and some trestles. To make these, therefore, I went to my parents’ in Baldock. The trestles were more complicated than I was expecting, as the legs need to meet the top out-of-square in two dimensions (making it less likely to tip in those dimensions). They are made from yellow pine, strengthened with some chipboard.

We have made the frames that will form the ends of the bench, but we will have to make the rest in situ.
