The top has been made flat with lots of hand planing and some sanding. The leg vise and Veritas Twin Screw end vise have been installed, and here’s a photo of my progress to this point. The cabinet underneath used to be below my old workbench, and I have built this bench around the cabinet. Though it still has its wheels, there isn’t anywhere for it to go. I plan to build a permanent base for it later. There are several other items remaining to be done, including making the square bench dogs, tweaking the vises to perfect adjustment, and finishing the piece, probably with linseed oil.
