I have an opportunity to pick up
2 - 5 1/8 by 15"by 14 ' long glue lam beams. $100. each Brand new.
I'm figuring I can make 1 workbench top (7' x 30") out of one beam, and would like to know if anybody has made a benchtop with gluelams, have taken a plane to 'em, etc. Also, is the cost reasonable? Gluelams aren't exactly something I can comparison shop at the Borg.
Also, not having a beam saw, any suggestions on a good ways of cutting the beam insuring that I have clean square ends for vise mounting and such?
