All fantasy should have a solid base in reality

I did manage to get all my workbench base pieces fitted and dry assembled.

One trick I used was chalk on my tenons for fitting.  I chalked the tenons once they start to fit but get stuck.  When I slide the tenon in, the areas that are sticking rub the chalk off.

And that’s .. where I focus my trimming for the perfect fit.
