Its been a day shy of a month since my last posting. I have been working on flattening the bench top, refining gap stop, drilling dog holes.

It pretty much seem done except the installation of the Benchcrafted tail vise. Like I’ve said, so much is done yet I’m still far from completing the workbench.

Progress as of March 06, 2015

Cheers :))

Wow—it looks gorgeous! I also am in a similar situation—I live in Israel and it’s very hard to get supplies and tools for classic woodworking. Your blog is inspiring!
