I’m getting ready to build the workbench in the latest Tools magazine, and I’m able to get some 4×3 white oak boards that will work for the legs and shorter parts of the trestle. I’m going to get maple for the stretchers and for the top. Is there any forseeable problems with mixing the white oak with the maple when I make the bottom?
Also, I’m not too sure what was meant by offsetting the dowel holes to create a draw effect. I understand the principle but where do you offset them and by how much?
