    My understanding so far.The wood goes through a thickness planer only or hand plane.The plywood is sanded slightly.Glue within 24 hours.I suggest not to sand the spar caps.

    When I tried to register, I kept getting an error message that says registration is closed due to a spam problem. How do I contact the admin to get around this problem?

    Please tell me more about your workbench; it appears to be a variant on the EAA 1000 design. How long? How wide? It looks to have a long piece of aluminum flat bar attached to the top. ??

    Its just a frame made of 2x4's that's a total of 16' long x 4' wide for the plywood top to sit on. I also laid the aluminum angle rail to the one edge to use as a guide. I made absolutely sure it was straight with a solid level (straight edge) as I screwed it down. I was also careful to make sure the whole workbench was level and flat.

    An easy way to anchor a leveled workbench in place is to use Bondo to bond it to the workshop floor.
