I finished the Benchcrafted wagon vice installation on the Roubo bench this AM. It works like a champ, only misstep was I mis-cut the dog block so it will need to be re-made. I have to say it is a relief to get the wagon vice install done, it was the only area of the bench build where a mistake could have been costly in time and effort.

Both slabs are finished, legs and stretchers are milled and glued, I need to re-do the dog block, cut a few mortice and tenons, drill a draw bore hole or two and I will be finished.

I’ve enough SYP left over to make another Roubo. Thinking about making another but do it galoot style…..problem is I don’t have enough room for 2 of ‘em.
