Woody Woodworking

and its tools

Dog Bone Bench

1 min read

In the summer of 2017, I went to an outdoor woodworking event in Skiatook Oklahoma. While there I received an osage orange slab from my friend Ted Alexander. Since then it’s been pushed around and kept out of the way in two different shops and a materials storage shed. I think it’s about time I do something with it.

The benchtop is osage orange and the legs are ash. It’s finished with a simple oil/wax finish that will require touchups and maintenance down the road. It’s not a durable outdoor finish. However, no matter what I put on it I will have to refinish it at some point. Might as well make it easy to refinish.

– For flattening the slab I used the Astra coated SB25-2 from Bits & Bits. https://bitsbits.com/product/sb25-2-kit/
– For the mortises, I used the 540-SRF500 2 flute 1/2" spiral upcut bit https://bitsbits.com/product/540-srf500-up-cut/
