The vise screw is scheduled for delivery sometime tomorrow. While waiting for the screw I'm putting together a Japanese style tool box to transport the needed tools. That may make carrying around a work bench worthwhile or maybe not..
It is a simple build, I'm sure I'm making it more complex than needed but that is the Western way :-). I cheated and dug out and blew all the dust off the old biscuit joiner. BTW, it took a couple of minutes of butt scratching to remember how to use it. Finally figured it out and used it for the end butt joints. The cut nails should add a little to the strength but I suspect they will be more decorative than anything else.
I'll tongue and grove the bottom slats if time permits.
I have not decided on a sliding tray or not, right now I'm leaning toward yes.
Labor Day is barreling done on us and I have no days off before we leave for Oregon.
