Quick update on the workbench. I laminated up the rest of my thin stock into the trestle components.
2 trestle feet & 2 tresle top members plus 4 trestle legs.
I haven’t figured out what to do with the stretchers yet, but am considering a different colored hardwood (Mahogany / walnut?)
So, although the progress is slow, I am having fun learning about laminating, milling to size, etc. I just ordered the 2 vises from Lee Valley. Although I was originally going to put a single screw face vise on both the face & end, my brother convinced me that I would regret not investing in the Veritas Twin Screw for the end vise. So, I have a single screw lee valley face vise, and the twin screw end vise coming soon.
On an entirely seperate note, check this out – a gift from my brother-in-law:
Yes, that is one big chunk of beeswax.
Stand by for more updates soon. Thanks for checking in.
