00,007 / 10,000

With work, college, and the kids running a much it has taken me awhile to have the time to post another blog entry. I put in 3 hours of work on my workbench over the past week or so. I finally go that sucker very flat with my #7. I am having problems with the crappy knotty whitewood from Lowes with my smoothing plane set to the finest setting. It stick chops and skips no matter which way I am planning. I may end up just getting a ROS with my tool money. But with a smooth top or not it is done! I cut both my ends “square” with my crosscut saw. I have some work to do still with trueing up my ends and the faces of the 2×4 top to make sure everything is nice and square. Hopefully I will finish that worth over the next few days and I will get to work installing my Jorgensen vice 10” Jaw size with 12” opening capacity and it has a built in dog. Once I get that heavy beast installed it is on to my dog holes. I will add some pictures of the bench when I get home. I have added some tools along the way over the past couple of weeks and I think I am pretty well setup to be able to do most of the minor woodworking projects I want to complete like the sofa table (still in the planning stages). Hopefully I will have a finished bench by the end of this weekend! (then again it is the kickoff of march madness so…. maybe not)
