Yes, another placeholder post from yours truly. I was able to finish glue up on the second leg over the weekend. Had to improvise on a few clamps since it was too cold for glue to set outside.

Now all that’s left is to add some three inch screws to both legs, pretty them up a bit and voila!
Had to go back and cut the hole in the benchtop for the wagon vise. I picked up a HF trim router yesterday and tried out a straight bit in it to clean up the edges. came out alright – but definitely need more practice. I’ll try to get some better pics once I get done at work today.

Looking pretty exciting. You know that you can just use the (alignment) screws in the legs as clamping. You shouldn’t need extra clamps.

Looks great. Merry Christmas.

@Randy LOL yeah well – I did Mt. Dew and OJ in college and got burnt out. The coke is even only for the holidays – the sprite is my SO’s – she doesn’t drink anything with caffeine in it. After the holidays I’m back to water/milk/tea. I don’t need the sugar as it is but it mixes so nicely with the Jack D.

Thanks Mr. P! Had I remembered to grab screws before I started gluing I would’ve but no. I’ll still put a few in as a just in case.

Thanks Jim! Imma tryin!
