As posted earlier, I picked up a Groz 10-inch vise for the front vise ($85 from CL) and yesterday scored a lighter 10-inch vise for the tail (CL $20).
I'm building a semi-split top. About 24 inches at the front vise end of the top will be solid across and the remainder will have a 6 inch tool well w ith a removable cover. Modeled in part after a gorgeous bench I saw at Lee Valley.
For joining the trestles and the stringers, I'm going to use the dominos an d where feasible back them up with 3/8 inch bolts.
Pix to come when it gets interesting. At my usual pace that will be someti me next week.
