Welcome to Lumberjocks, Dr. C. That is a very impressive workbench and will be a wonderful addition to your shop.

Thanks Charles, I consider that high praise coming from you. I had a GREAT day in the shop today. I am working on the leg vise now and made big progress and no major screw ups. That’s how I score my progress, sort of like the QB rating, completed passes, incompletes and interceptions.

Not a perfect passer rating today but with so many cuts on the face of the leg vise and no big mistakes there I feel very fortunate. I find that if I don’t get in a rush the quality of my work goes way up. I am not good enough at this to be fast. A few pics of the day’s work here. ( still have not taken the time to figure out how to reduce the size of my photos).

I also needed to build a crank handle for the leg vise. It required a slightly odd dimension dowel (7/8”, actually slightly smaller). So finding nobs for that was a witch with a capital B. Since I don’t have a lathe I cut a piece of walnut I had into two small blocks and with the block plane and sanders I whittled them down into something like nobs. See the pics here.
