    Mike,

    I can't speak for the CVS mask, but I've used a 3M 6100 half face mask in the past, albeit professionally (in a chemical manufacturing environment). This mask is inexpensive and can be used...

    Check out the Sagulator (http://www.woodbin.com/calcs/sagulator/) to calculate this. With your numbers and assuming 24" deep, you're looking at about a third of an inch sag. Too much, especially if...

    Dave, I didn't mean I thought they'd be dry in a week, but they are nowhere near as wet as they were and some of the parts can be cut and assembled still slightly wet (according to Mike). I don't...

    Beautiful work, Allen. Working with metal is something I've never learned, and I'm always more and more interested in trying when I see things like this.

    Wanted to clarify - I'm a lefty but work on the "righty" (left) side of the bench. Working on the actual right side will be new to me!

    Nicholson workbench build

    Alright, everyone. I've heard that when you make commitments to others, you tend to be more faithful in following through, so I'm starting my workbench build thread as incentive to get this done!

    That's nice to know, Chris. I'm looking forward to trying out a 'real' bench. :)

    Nice vise, Matt! I didn't bother with the chamfers on mine (lazy) but I did cut the chop slightly wider (taller) than the base and installed it with the tops flush. This small extension allows me...
