My brother and his wife have been visiting from Winnipeg the last couple of days mainly to see their niece and nephew :-) but also to celebrate my birthday a couple of days early. My brother (enabling my tool addiction) gave me the large Lee Valley bench vise ( http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?c=&cat=1,41659,41661&p=31137\). Knowing the Jenn gives them an update on what is currently on my wish list at LV, I consider that her telling Bill that the vise was a good gift is like Jenn saying “Go ahead build that bench” so I take it as tacit approval for my building a bench!!!
Now I just have to clear a few projects off my ‘started list’ and sell off my oak desk (I am giving Bill the oak office table I am currently using as a bench/assembly table) once I get the new one built. Anybody want to buy an old 1950’s oak office desk complete with plate glass top protector:-)?
