"Any bench or platform for hand or power tool work needs to be as stable as possible, the only difference is that with power tools, when it moves you lose more wood or fingers."

Hey Shawn,

That is actually just two pieces of wood. The neck board in the middle and a slotted wider piece underneath so we could carve out any shape we wanted. But the glue works great with tension. We just started using scarf joints for the head angles and again no problem with tension at all.

 

I say go for it!
