Bench is finished
Finally finished my bench this weekend. Wagon Vise (Veritas Shoulder Vise Screw) on the right end and Wilton left, and a 7"x8"x1/2" A36 Steel Anvil Plate inset. The working section is 12" deep 6' long and the back is 10"x 6'. Under carriage is Red Cedar. Finish is 2 coats of 50/50 thinned Minwax Polyurethane. Each bench top is held on with six 4" "Timber lok" Truss Screws and the stringers are secured by 4 Bench Bolts from Woodcraft. The bench is specifically designed to be knocked down into 6 pieces for easy transport when I move (again!) in 2 more years.
I was going to install a couple of "T-tracks" in it but have since decide not to that. I still need to make up a few bench accessories particularly a bench hook, a shooting board and I need to install a shelf on top of the stringers.
