Just trying to gather up what I have left and get a game plan together. The bench has been in quasi use as I finish the vises up but the vises are going to be necessary for a few of the projects I have on board so the quicker I can finish these up and get them in use, the better! Something tells me they’ll be the toughest parts though.
1. Lower Brace – needs cut and holes bored
2. Wagon pieces – are cut but not assembled /holes drilled.
3. base block /wedge 2 – cut and assembled but not fine tuned
4. angle fillers – cut but not planed to thickness
5. vice shims – not yet cut
6. wheel – not yet cut
7. Vice log center end wedge piece – cut but not installed
As much as I wanted to give a try to the facing pieces and their joinery, I think I’m scrapping that for now so I can get the rest of it completed. My other dilemma is the vice log cheek and centers are glued and finished, but I checked yesterday and they are just shy of being able to fit in the hole created for it in the leg… in this case I would’ve rather had them a bit too small than a bit too big. just have to decide if I want to plane the vice log cheeks or try to enlarge the hole on the leg. Leaning towards the former, but I have enough to work on before I get there I can stew on it a bit more. Pictures to follow!
