« Part 9: A vise, a vise, my kingdom for a vise ... Part 10 of Outfitting the workshop series Part 11: What NOT to do with the lathe! »

We’ve been seeing above 0 degrees the last few days so I thought I’d turn the heat on in the shop and finish my bench. I’d reinforced the apron mounted the faces and planed everything flush.

A closer view:

I think this is the first task in the shop that is done, no further intended fiddling I can just go and start using it!

I am a bit concerned that there seems to be a bit if racking when I open the vice, not sure if its not installed correctly or if that is expected.

Next week tackling those long over-due mortises!

Good that you are getting your shop in shape Mark. The bench and vise looks good.
