This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Some progress was made on the new workbench I'm building. Technically the workbench is designed for building cabinets and other assembly heavy projects but I suspect it's main use will be in the building and scenicing of sectional terrain panels.
The support frame is almost finished. You can see where I was practicing making pocket holes of the center brace.
I still need to add some support braces on the legs - they'll go in between the to long rails to ensure the workbench if very sturdy.
The overall workbench will measure 38.5 x 72 inches.
Arrgghhhh!!!!! the lower left corner is slightly out of plumb. The easiest way to fix that is a bit of shim material and we'll be all nice and square.
The two gaps created by the three rail work top support will be used for some drawers I'll build. This is where most of the wood working tools and bits will be stored.
All of the length's of wood for the workbench top have be cut.
Quitting time!, the next step will be attaching the workbench top pieces and then a lot of hand planing of flat surface. I got a good wood vice on sale that I still need to figure out where to attach. Decisions, decisions....
