« Part 7: Top Almost Done Part 8 of Workbench series Part 9: Making Wooden Screws »

Hello. This is a video I made to show the details and construction of my bench so far. I go over the shoulder vise construction and joinery. I hope it may be useful to those who may be contemplating bench designs. I will make a few more videos as I progress, and I will have a video or two on making wooden screws and nuts aswell.

Nice details on your workbench build. It looks like you have done a wonderful job so far. Thank you for sharing it with us.

It would be nice to see a video on your wooden screw maker. Do you have any more details about it?

I am making a video of the screw making jig, and a video on the tap for the nuts. Should be on here in a few days.

Amazing details, craftsmanship and ingenuity. I certainly wish I had gotten serious about woodworking when I was your age. Great work.

That bench looks like it can hold anything you throw at it. Very nice…
