I watched that just yesterday, looks to be another good project by Paul.
He's got a good softly spoken approach which makes it accessible to everyone.

lol, handplaning plywood.  I don't use my bandsaw for cutting strips, I use my tablesaw. Does a bandsaw leave a rougher edge requiring some treatment? watched it without sound cuz im at work

He planes it to obtain a reference edge (after bandsawing the strips). Which is solid woodworking practice.

I invite you to watch the where he explain why he use a bandsaw. It could have been a table saw or a track saw. Beside the bandsaw he only use a cordless drill & his hand tools  [big grin]

I wonder how Paul (or his team) now prepares stock for his online classes. At his old school, he had a furniture maker as one of his neighbors who owned such machines as a joiner, thickness planer, tablesaw, etc., and did most stock preparation for him.

As for the bandsaw, I use it mostly for round/curve work and resawing.

But why? Some people make furniture from re-glued plywood aiming for an interesting or modern look, but a workbench?
Looks like a waste to me.

When I lived in the UK, I tried to get into one of Pauls Classes. But everytime I eied either something came up or he moved his shop to Oxford. Then just before I left for home he started having classes. Oh well I like his videos. Not te same as his classes of course but their pretty good.

As far as the work plywood work bench goes. I prolly wouldnt do it myself, but it is a nice alternative to a solid wood one.

Not sure why people are hating the plywood workbench. It makes complete sense. It may not be an aesthetic people  like, because it violates the wood worker work bench orthodoxy. However, it should yield a stronger solution if done well. This process has some advantages. Depending on your material supply and your tools and capacity, this is a sound approach.
