« Part 3: Chapter 2 - Assembly, End Cap and Vise Part 4 of Roubo Workbench series no next part

After the success tweaking the installation for the end vise I hoped the good karma would continue to the leg vise. Not so…

It All Starts With A Small Bonk…

I removed my chop from the clamps, removed the glue and jointed/planed to size. the final size was about a 2 3/8 thick – plenty. I determined the centerline of the chop and leg and clamped the chop directly to the leg. I transferred the hole locations to the chop. The it was off to the drill press. Simple.

While at Marc Adams we drilled the holes for the crisscross in the leg before assembly using a drill press. So I should be half way there…right? Wrong!

Thanks for reading!
