« Part 24: Pig n Lipstick? Or something along those lines.... Part 25 of Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench series Part 26: What's left? Regroup »

So I’ve finally gotten to the point of trying to get the vice pieces cut out. Here’s the two pieces I’m working on;

I’m close on the first one – sorry – not many in process pics – basically I just measured the crud out of the SU piece and transferred that to the wood.



The second is still in the transfer stage. not quite sure how to start cutting on this one.

Thanks Mr. P! I feel like I’ve thought on it enough it should be plain to see the course – but it’s not. One question though – should the vise pieces be glued together, or epoxied? I figured I should adhere them together before doing any final cleaning up/squaring/etc but i wasn’t sure what to use or if I should possibly wait until I was closer to the finished product.

I don’t know which vice pieces you mean. The part outside the wedge on the leg vice that the wedge bears on is about the only really critical one. I used hot hide glue on mine but any decent glue is stronger than the wood so use what you have. You can glue them up any time.

Vices…. vises….. You do know that one is English and one is American, right? :-)

Moar pics :)

I had some antique walnut polyshades open so I decided to use some of it on these oak parts.

Not too bad! Got the one wedge glued up as well. Still working on the other though – slow going with a chisel. haven’t nailed myself yet :D
