Progress On Travel Bench

The travel bench is coming along. The legs are dimensioned, the top bridle joints are done. Next is to finish chopping out the through mortise and the dove tail socket. Because the legs are at a 15 degree angle the stretcher mortise will have to wait for the stretcher glue up and tenon. The top is a slab so all it needs is to be cut off to final length.

I've a wood screw and nut on order. The screw and nut may take 2 to 3 weeks for delivery. I hope I'm waiting on the vise screw to finish the build.

Here are a couple of photos of the legs:

There are not many days off over the next couple of weeks which will slow the build as will the mid-afternoon heat. Still this is such a simple bench it should be ready well before the Oregon trip.
