I feel bad and hope no one was actually paying attention to this following along anyway…. I work in an environment where ya get poofed away at times.. I am back and I DID keep photo’s of everything SO I will go thru the painfull steps of getting my photo’s updated and ya be amazed an awed (or ya not admit it) if the end product! It looking sweed and I am building most of the rest of it on it.. It is a grunt, lift, drop to move it. Ya still need to “clamp crap to it” but.. the tail vide is being used… Today I made the deadman, the Facevice, chopped out the lower piece of it…. gluied that up and drilled a peg for the that. Pegged and glued it up.. I had a friend lend me a Brace and a pile of bits… I think I am gona be so sore Ill not be able to seduce my love for a few weeks. Braces and old school bits are so cool. but when ya not use them daily they use stuff ya never use… I am so SORE. tomorrow Ill finish up the side vice and then spen the pain to position the and finish the blog.. I am sorry Its so taking to so long.

Rich, good craftsmanship can’t be rushed and sometimes life’s other priorities have a way of “inteferring” with our plans but it sounds like you are back on track with the bench construction. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your progress when you get a chance to post them.

A bench is on my short list (if I can convince my wife that HER list can be put on hold) so it will be interesting to see how yours is coming.

You will See that I used the bench as a Tool, I need to get to her list!... It;s like hunny “We need pretty crown moulding!”. .my answer… Well Fine but the complex joinery will require me to get a compound Miter saw.. Gotta learn how to play the fool at times.. My Wife is an Architect so I cant get away with silliness, she will look the other way if I am having fun chopping out mortises and junk as long as the job is pretty when its done..

So Off to to upload and go thru the PITA of getting a publishable photo. Hopefully well get this done in a few days.. Ill try to get the next post up tonight…
