    Stretchers located at the floor would not allow for easy bench height shortening if desired. I can't prove it, but I tend to think that the floor level stretchers would bother my feet too. I'd leave...

    No, it is not stupid to drawbore the frame. I believe that is the way they were built back in the day. I will call "BS" on your statement - " but I don't have the skill yet". The Moravian is not a...

    They are so, so useful in checking for square. So much handier than a ruler. I used some taped up ones for a while and eventually bought an inexpensive hardware kit from LV to make one set that seems...
