I’ve been building a few slab benches. They are all joined with dowel pins and glue, no screws. Two have three coats of shellac and four have two coats of spar polyurethane. My next batch will have the traditional 4 legs, though these are sturdy/stable. In my shop, my workhorse is this JET JJP-12 12-Inch Jointer Planer
If the slab is wider than 12″, I use my Makita KP0810 7.5 Amp 3-1/4-Inch Planer
All six together….
