Here's what I've been working on. All the major rip cuts are done, one of the wide boards is the deadman, the other is two stretchers. I cut everything with my most coarse saw, which happened to be crosscut(not in any pictures, sorry). For the leg and stretcher laminations, I built some clamps. They are just square boxes I screwed together with 2 wedges. The slope of the wedges is about 1.75":15". They work suprisingly well, with the wedges pounded in place, I cannot budge any of the boards, not even at the ends. It will be interesting to see how the do with glue.
