That is a cool bench. It is amazingly versatile. Thanks for the video. You will have tons of use out of it for a long, long time.

I just started my build last week cold here no heated shop . I have the legs cut out and drilled hopefully get assembled to day. Did you drill the holes in your clamps to mount the front jaw? Clamps I have do not have holes.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

ROOFNER I just positioned the clamps so they would not interfere with the hole placement.

But it is best to drill both boards together you could use screws inplace of clamps to hold them together while drilling.

Good luck

Actually I was talk about the end vise the metal jaws on pipe clamp have holes when you bought them or did you drill?

I just assumed that the video was a replay of Fine woodwooking that I looked at. That is a great video will help with my build. I got one of the leg sets done. Others cut and drilled just have to drive the lag screws.

I drilled holes in the pipe clamp faces for the screws. It was easy metal to drill.

I see you bought the printed plans . I bought the electronic version. Did the printed give dimension for hole drill layout for the long clamps.

I drilled 1/8 inch holes for some #6 wood screws. The metal is soft on the clamps so it drills easily. The printed plans did not give the hole size to drill.

Hope this helps.

Thanks I just hoping for hole placement dimensions for large pipe-clamps on ends. Distant from sides I guess Ill go into sketch up and take some ruff measurements.

Looking at the hardwood jaws it looks like you used two pieces of wood instead of rabbiting the jaws. I was thinking of the same idea.

The wood for the jaws are two pieces that are notched to sit on the sides of the center bin one piece is screwed to the bench then the other is free to be moved with the tail pieces of the pipe jaws. also roofner I will check my hole placement today for the pipe clamp holes and let you know the measurements the printed plans also leave this out , I had to figure that part out myself.
