Some aged fir being integrated into a new portable workbench.  No longer having a proper work bench, the table saw becomes the focus of the little shop.  Flat surface, sturdy place to clamp, it does the trick.  Yes, that is blood from a chisel nick. 

First dovetail on the saw bench.  A little experiment.
