Thats looking good and getting close to the finish line.  Are you putting a shelf on the bottom?

No I’m not doing the self. It’s just a place for shavings to pile up.

So I started on the chop this morning. I wasn’t looking forward to making the mortise for the criss cross so I cheated. To get the 3” needed for the chop I had to do a glue up. So what I did was resaw a piece of 8/4 down to the mortise depth then cut out the mortise with the bandsaw. Then glued the other piece on to it to make the perfect mortise pocket.B97AEF01-9EA4-43F2-ABA4-D32AD4BE4652.thumb.jpeg.2ac54207669bbdf870b19e143a07d330.jpeg477F1598-3112-4502-9BAE-76D2E7ED7CEA.thumb.jpeg.4412e46b4ec7849978de1e612aac6a80.jpegDF6A9D0F-70AF-43BC-88F3-21E753243272.thumb.jpeg.a4beb76194dcdbb8f75fe6de03100811.jpegF396301B-37F0-4802-8F5A-F3F87D7E8428.thumb.jpeg.fe5060c2947821b6bea4c84c1aa3bcfd.jpegIm all but finished now got a few more dog holes to drill. The leg vise hardware went good.  I recommend to anyone when you go to install the pins that hold the criss cross to the leg an chop wax it first so much easier to install an remove as you adjust the toe in on the vise. It’s shop furniture it’s got so ugly spots already got grease hand prints from the screw install. I’m ok with that I’ve got projects stacking up. So after this weekend it’s back to projectsD37CE156-648D-4165-98B3-EC5ACD09B791.thumb.jpeg.36e71cc633e779bab8840f74e4c46d5b.jpegNext will but adding on to my tool storage cabinet that sits behind the bench final resting spot. An then some moving stuff around an try out my new layout. My son has already claimed my old bench.

Nice job on the chop!  I've done this myself with this hardware!

Bench looks awesome and ready for some serious projects!

Today’s progress in the shop. I finished up the bench well as far as I’m taking. I left some bumps an bruise it’s going to happen anyway. I put 1 coat of danish oil on the top an chop. For a lil glue protection. B170852D-D758-4629-A055-720A53E3AB97.thumb.jpeg.a6299a9d0f9bfc91e554189d282aa87f.jpeg

I tore apart my old bench an built a cheap frame for the top. I lowered it down for a better height for my son. 9F411372-9D9C-407A-B33B-06154E34BE7E.thumb.jpeg.845f792fb72d9fe54c8484675a6390fe.jpeg
 

I took the old base cabinet that was under my old bench. I made a new top out of some left over plywood an trimmed it some pine. 12DA7D14-56E8-4B4F-8482-30084ACCAE0C.thumb.jpeg.f8c37683655b92b1826e9990d689c3f6.jpeg

So question for the group I’m thinking about mounting my Moxon vise here permanently. Does anyone see a issue I may be missing?46BE308A-8AA4-4E8D-9C64-9C43569EFFD4.thumb.jpeg.b3760bcaec0fbd87d9e7b58a3325aa58.jpeg

Bunch turned out great!  Super happy for you!

As for the Moxon...  I wouldn't mount it where you suggested.  The reason I say this?  Suggest doing a few projects and see where it ends up getting used and then make that decision.

Just my 2 worth..

Yes it I love it. I like planing against a stop over being held in a vise.

You put dog holes in the bench, use them to your advantage..  I use them for the hi-vise and they work well to hold it..

Yea on the bench that’s not the problem. I meant on the cabinet

Does the cabinet have enough mass for the Moxon or could there be some un-wanted vibration when using hand tools?

For mounting it to the cabinet, maybe some T - nuts on the underside of the cabinet top and long threaded bolts to go through the Moxon.  You would have some holes in you counter top when the Moxon wasn't there but should be to big of a problem.

I don’t think mass I a problem it’s full of tools an I could screw it to the wall if needed. I’ll check on the t nut idea on clearance under the top
