Now that is something I have never seen before, how is it attached to the bench? Welcome to LJs.

Angle iron is screwed to the portable workbench which is then clamped to any flat surface. It turns any table or countertop into a workbench with a vice and a good spot for dovetailing.

I love that the portable bench is attached to a regular bench. Nice job. Any travel plans for the milkman?

Haha yes but that bench doesn’t have a vise or any way to secure a board for dovetailing… until now! If I remember right it’s called the milkmans bench because it was modeled after a similar antique bench that belonged to a milkman.

That looks so cool. You did a nice job on that. How did you cut the threads?

Clean looking job. I don’t know how you guys finish projects this is another on of those builds I have everything rough cut and made my screws and then it has set collecting dust since that point (so essentially a few weeks after the issue you referenced).
How did you cut the threads? I used a wood threading kit bought from Woodcraft. Worked rather well after spending a little time with the V cutter and soaking my dowel in mineral oil but still think I would like a cleaner thread than I ended up with the maple I used.
