types of vises to use on a new workbench
I am in the planning stage for building my first real workbench. Until now i have made do with my table saw top, folding tables and sawhorses, but I have some free oak and will use it for my top, and 2''x2'' steel tubing base. I have reveiwed my old woodworking magizines for designs and ideas. I know that I want a Veratis twin screw vise on one end with round dog holes running the length of the 2 1/2'' thick top but cannot decide on the other vice for the other end, I have never used a proper bench so I don't have anything to compare vices with, I do want it to be able to work in conjuction with dog holes along the side of the top. I will be building storage drawers underneith. It will have leveling feet on the bottom because no floor is ever flat and it will also double as an outfeed table for the table saw. I think a 30''x 72'' top will be a good size. What would be the best finish for a red oak top. I would like to have some sort of retractable wheels so that it can be moved around if needed, does anyone have some ideas they can share. I welcome all input, this will be my first workbench and I would like to get it right the first time around.
