Spent the day piecing together and cutting iron for the wagon vise hardware and skid. As I had mentioned in the previous post this is what I am getting my inspiration from… I am using the same hand wheel as on the leg vise just a smaller diameter. I have also added a tapered copper fitting to the end of the screw that fits into a bearing that will be pressed into the wood under the table to add both stability to the screw and a bit more of a smooth crank. I wasn’t able...
FINALLY! Finished rough dimensioning of the wood for the top. In the process have become good friends with my Skill Saw.. even though it is only the cheap 12A model it is a beast and a work horse lol. I have also decided to cheat and count it as a “had tool” since I hold it in my hand and push it with my hand lol.. so this is still mostly hand tool built so far! Rough dimensions of the top are 2 5/8” X 23 1/2” x 75” and that will reduce down a bit after I s...
I visited my local orange store today and picked up the materials for the base. I am using 4×6 Douglas Fir for the legs and 4×4 DF for the stretchers.

In my last video I showed you all the renovation of the old shop space, during that renovation, I made some recess cavities in one wall of the shop. In this video I walk you through the steps of making the recess shelf unit to go into those cavities. These recess shelves are not just for the shop, they can be used in the home as well!
