I’m a DIY’er in the novice degree, biting off more than I can chew. I am ‘trying’ to make a butcher block style woodworkers bench 6′ (six) long which atm is roughly 7′ and approx 30″ wide and used 2 x 6 pine,thicknesses of boards are varying in size. Here are a few pics of the woodworkers bench/table and I am having issues with: placement of 10″ woodworking vise. In the pics bench is upside down and very uneven. How far, if needed do I need to inset vise? What other bracing is needed to support vise? Like I said, ‘NOVICE’.
I also want to insert 3 threaded rods, 5/8″ dia to spread evenly to assist in keeping lumber together from humidity. If vise is on my left, where would I place that rod, close to end or measure evenly across rest of table top from right edge of vise?
Thank you in advance for any and all advice.
