@whtrbt Gluing the two planed faces together to make a good size leg.
@whtrbt scoring the line seems to help guide the saw?
Here is a long thread on keeping moss as a houseplant that I pulled off my twitter, wrapped up as a blog post - so now you can read about practical moss gardening without having to visit that website :>
Making aprons for the bench side. #theWorkshop
@whtrbt Smoothing out the bench top. Gotta decide whether to take off more to get rid of the gaps caused by the chamfered edge on the wood I laminated.
Making a workbench in my basement car park . Step 1... plane and laminate a heap of cheap pine. #theWorkshop
@whtrbt I did it! How nice has been meditating today, my back says thanks x1k!!!
For a long time I always preferred the half lotus because I couldn't stand the kneeled position for very long, but it's waaaay better for my back!
In the future I might want to make a slightly wider one, and also make it foldable like yours :)
@whtrbt oh, it’s meant to be angled... I didn’t mess up the cuts 😂
@whtrbt as I mentioned in my vipāssāna thread, I get pain in my knee... doesn’t bother me much usually but staying in a fixed position (i.e. meditation) really exacerbates it. This really helps, but it’s also a comfortable way to sit and work if you don’t want to sit at a chair. And harder to slouch. :)
Just built myself a tiny bench so I can kneel for more than half an hour while meditating. :)
Used some Spotted Gum that was intended for decking, but it looks really nice. Added hinges so I can fold it up and also some felt padding on the feet.
Might make a small cloth bag to put it in that doubles as a thin cushion. :)
