« Part 8: Bench vice Installation, Finally!! Part 9 of 10,000 Hours series Part 10: Life is tough... »

00,011 / 10,000

It has been awhile since my last blog post I have had some long days and work and finals for my two college courses I am taking. Anyways my bench ins finally complete! Over the past two weeks I slowly worked towards getting my bench vice installed, the wood faces for the vice. Just last night I drilled my dog holes. I still need to chamfer the edges on them but I am ready to put my bench to work! I put in about two hours of work on my bench since my last post which brings me up to 11 hours towards my 10,000 hour goal. I will begin my first furniture project sometime this upcoming week. My finals are over after today so I will have a lot more free time. I have some scraps to practice joinery on and learn some techniques etc. before I start my project. More to come on that later and maybe my next post will include a sketchup drawing so you all can comment on how crappy my design is and how I should improve it :).

All suggestions and critiques are welcome throughout my journey to 10,000 hours of woodworking.

Thank you all for reading! Check out my other blog posts too!
