Long time getting back to this I know :) It’s been a wild summer so far!

I got back to working on one of the wagon vise pieces and I’m hoping I’m doing this right. I worked on it mainly with a chisel and a dovetail saw, trying to get the material all cut away. it’s not pretty but measurement wise I think it’s close. here’s the original SU item followed by my pics:

That’s pretty coarse grain to be dealing with but it should work.
A band saw is a real asset for this piece. The good news is that it is a solo piece so if it doesn’t work, you just have one piece to re-make. Let me know how it works out.

Will do Mr.P! I’ve got to rebuild one of the other pieces as well but nothing horrible. I also now have an 1/8” blade on the bandsaw – should probly make a fence before tackling this piece again :)
