Today I got a chance to final cut the drawer parts and do a glue up. I use the band saw to cut out the drawer front, then cleaned them up with a spoke shave and rasp.
A friend of mine live near a plastics outlet and picked up a nice thick sheet of plastic that keeps the glue off my bench. The hide glue wipes off easily and then I tuck the sheets away. And the sheet is big enough to cover the full width of my bench. Sweet!
