Finally, a package with my vintage vice screw (thanks Smitty)
And maybe some of you remember some wood I got. It was 2” thick, about 9” wide and consisted of oak, birch and polar. I’m not sure what it was cut for, but it was headed for a fireplace. It has been outside for a while, so it has a rustic look.
Well one of the pieces of oak seemed to have Leg Vice written all over it.
So, grab the #6 and start to straighten it up.
Make it nice with the Veritas scraper.
Round the edges with the Sargent 5206
Countersink the screw. Note the mark on the drill for the proper depth.
Mark and cut the taper
Again the #6 to clean up the bandsaw marks.
Grab the #3 to round over the bottom.
Drilled the Leg, counter sunk the screw and attached.
Made the positioning pieces for the bottom.
Gave it a good coat of BLO.
And I now have a Leg vice. FINALLY
