It has been a while since I posted stuff, so first I’ll catch up. I finished the mortises and tenons and assembled the legs and stretchers. The legs are very square and stable but the mortises are not as tight as I would like. They are going to take some fixing. I have put the top on the frame up side down so that I could attach the vices easier. I built a large standard single screw vice and mounted it as the end vise. It didn’t come with instructions, so I must have taken that vise apart ten times. But is is done and works well (up side down) Now I am ready to build the twin screw vice. Pictures in a bit.
