Soooo, it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t found a lot of time for woodworking. I’ve worked on a few small things here and there, but nothing major. I’ve recently gotten back into woodcarving and have been enjoying dreaming up projects and learning new techniques.
I got out to the shop one day a couple months back and decided I wanted to shorten my bench and put the vise closer to the end. At first I tried to do it with a skill saw and a guide. I got in a rush and the two and a half inch thick oak proved to be too much for the saw. I decided to try and hand cut it the way I had originally and wound up cutting the wrong mark.
In the end, I broke the whole thing down and hauled it out to my friend William’s. I made some better marked cuts and widened the tool tray opening. I managed to get out this morning and rework the new leg dadoes. Altogether I think it’s going to work a bit better for me.
