« Part 1: Guide block for the tap... Part 2 of Building my wooden Screw series Part 3: Creating the Guide for the Wood screw (version 2) »

As with everyone in the past 2-3 years, I started down the path to build my workbench which I wanted to have some wooden screws for the wagon vise and leg vise. I looked around to purchase some and realized that the price alone was reason enough to pursue building my own wood screw vise. So my search began with Google searching for how to do it. Luckily I came across CartersWhittling that gave me tons of information of how to build a screw. If you are looking to go down this path of building your own wood screw – go to Carters blog and start studying it. My life is busy with 4 kids and work, so I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to this, it came in chunks of time here and there.

Here I’m in the step of having the Tap Dowel created and my paper guide taped on to the dowel. I believe this was my 2nd version going on here. Yes, 2nd version. My first version I found the mortise for the scraping blade was too large and just messed up.

EDIT: This should be the first one, not the second one.
