Really impressive work, Groggy. I love the fluting on the legs. I hope you're feeling really proud of yourself for that wonderful piece!

Groggy,

Your bench may be one of those that in a hundred years is in a museum as an example of early 2000's work. It is just amazing.

Groggy,

Just because we believe that your bench is going to have historical significance does not mean that you should take a sledge hammer to it so as to prove its toughness.

I've already used a sledge to get the top on snugly, doesn't everyone?

Started on the leg vise this afternoon after lots of little jobs yesterday and this morning.

Made an error in reading the plan - there were two width measurements and (of course) I read the smaller of the two. So instead of using the bit I had put aside I needed to get an unprepared piece and start from scratch.

I'm making the blocks that hold the rollers, very fiddly. They have a few surfaces at different depths, a hole, a slot for the wheel, a bit of curvature for appearance and a routed slot. Surprising how many tools you can use on a six inch piece of wood - I have still got to rout some slots in it!

The wagon vise has got quite a workout and the holdfasts have proven their worth time and again. The strip in front of the block in pic #2 is to be glued to the back and fill the flute on the leg.

Once the slots are routed I can cut it in half to make the two roller brackets.
