« Part 18: pulling it together - pt 1 Part 19 of Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench series Part 20: one of those nights I'm somewhat glad I'm stubborn. »

so between graduation and feeling the winter blahs, I’ve been trying to move forward with getting the bench top in and the wagon vise in as well. Hopefully I havne’t messed anything up that can’t be fixed :D

Ok so, managed to get the frame inside, and now working on putting the top back together and glued/screwed together. I had the majority of the outside frame glued down before the holidays. Completed screwing this down with the #8×2in screws, and glued down the final pieces. I marked on the outside pieces the measurements where it should be hitting the legs for when I go to glue and screw it to the legs. Yes, empty cat litter pails make great storage and weight :D

so moving on, I’d measured the wagon vise hole and such in the SU document, and then read Mr. P’s directions. Hm. Per his directions, my hole is a bit big. Plus, it passes over a leg. it’s been long enough I need to revisit the SU and take yet another look at how to proceed. I also need to pick up some hardwood :D

That actually looks a bit small if anything ….. and it does pass over the leg so that’s OK too. If the photo shows the end of the hole closest to the near end of the bench, the SU actually shows it as 3”. The other end of the hole (closer to the far end of the bench) after the jog, is 2 1/4” wide. Whatever you have it isn’t important because you can make the wagon vice parts to fit the hole. Let me know (photo?) exactly what you have for an opening in the bottom plywood and I’ll let you know how to proceed.

Looks like you just missed the jog where it goes to 2 1/4”. You can just glue some 3/4” X 3/8” strips on the plywood edge. All that bit does is support the weight of the wagon so it doesn’t fall through and the strips will be supported by the top of the leg. You could drill and add a small nail or two if you want but I think glue should do it.

It’s awesome :) I’m hoping to get some soft maple this weekend since we’re heading in the direction of the sawmill and the weather is due to be decent. I”ll have to keep my fingers crossed! I need to continue forward and figure out what steps I can do from here before I get the wagon vise assembled
