Today I had to take on the bench build solo. I finished milling the legs to final width, height, and length. I set up a stop on the miter saw in order to ensure all for legs were exactly the same length, nothing worse than a rocking bench you just spent a month building!
Next came the standing them up and deciding which piece I wanted where. You want the best looking faces in the most visible areas.
Lastly I marked the legs according to the plans so there would be no confusion when it comes time to layout the many many mortises.
