Tool Cabinet interruption – Workbench stock break down

Today I interrupted my tool cabinet making to break down the stock for my workbench base that I’ll be building as part of the workbench guild build.  My workbench top is already complete so I won’t be making that part.

I really don’t like cutting 8/4 stock on the table saw.  It always feels kinda scary so I used my track saw to cut a straight edge and then crosscut to rough dimensions.  This is an idea I stole from watching some of Marc’s Usteam.

So here’s the pile of Western (soft) maple all cut so that I can tuck it away in the shop until the guild build is in full swing (January).
