I considered the stacked heel and scarf but I wanted a one piece. Since buying mahogany this way is so cheap I have to try it.

I already found it to be a problem. I broke my 1/4 blade cutting it. Not enough light in my garage and I couldn't see that the blade was being pushed to the side. I ordered a 3/8 blade and going to buy some LED shop lights today. Once I can see a little better I'm going to make sure the bandsaw is setup perfect before cutting the other 3 necks.

Since my bandsaw blade won't be here til Monday, I thought I would prepare some of this wood for stacked heel and scarf. Hey I get one more neck this way for a total of 5. Still need the BS to cut the scarf.

Plus I got some 1/8 veneer.????Image

After sanding everything in sight with my new 19X38 thickness sander, I now need a go-bar deck to install my braces. I have a very low ceiling so I decided to build a bench with a piece of ply attached to the ceiling over it.

Here's the first stage of the bench. It's 6' feet long so it can be used for other things as well. I got all the wood including the top (3/4" T11 ), I put the grooves face down, from the HD bargain bin. I had to do a little work on some of the twisted 2 Xs but I'm OK with that. I think the bench only cost about $30 so far.

I'm going to make the rods from hickory, ash or oak depending on what I can find with straight grain at the lumber store.

Have you already built the bench in the drawing above? If not, I have a suggestion depending on what other bench(es) you may already have in your shop. On the island bench I built and do most of my work on, I made the the top overhang by 3 1/2" on all sides. I use that feature all the time (almost daily) for clamping things to the bench. Very handy.

Thanks but I have another bench for clamping and other work. This one is mostly going to be for go-bar deck and maybe a drill press on one end and wood storage underneath.

Keep in mind for your go bar deck...
You’ll need a way to adjust the height. Clamping braces is one thing but if you close the body you’ll need a good bit more clearance.
What I’m saying is make it tall enough to close the body:)
You’ll need to stack things up and use a radius dish or something then to take up the slack to do braces on a plate.

I’ve been wanting to build and adjustable deck, but just haven’t gotten around to to it

Another thing about the go bar deck: The bottom deck needs to be unyielding. T11 is relatively thin, and the grooves weaken it a fair amount. You might want to double or triple it for the benchtop.
