Workbench #4: Photo Essay

Wow!  It’s been a year since my last post.  Home remodelling has been keeping me busy.  I have mostly completed my workbench, but never got around to posting about it.  Here is a photo essay showing the remaining construction.  I have yet to drill out the dog holes or put leather on the vise faces, but it’s at least basically functional for now 🙂

I don’t remember if I got any pictures of the vise installation.  I’ll check and include them in the next post if I have any.
