Last night I finished the leg vise, drilled the holdfast holes and installed the shelf.
Now I just have to flatten the top (and yes, tooth it) and tend to some accessories:
1. A drawer to the right of the right leg.
2. A swing-out grease box.
3. A tool rack at the rear.
I hope to flatten the benchtop today because tomorrow this bench is going to work. I have a potential buyer for my 2005 Southern yellow pine bench stopping by early Friday morning.
