    2 Benches - WIP

    For Christmas presents to the grown kids, I am making copies of an upholstered bench I made for myself a few years ago. Good way to use up small pieces and short ends from under my work bench .
    Probably my best M&T work so far . By using my Vega copier, it only takes 15 minutes to turn and sand each leg.

    Maybe, but you should see the amount of projects that Bryan builds. Did you see the desk he built last christmas? Bryan just knocks off these big projects in no time.

    Not to worry, it is just "Vega Duplicator" envy talking

    Oh how depressing. It takes me 15 minutes just to remember where the "on" switch is on the lathe.

    Very cool Bryan. I can't wait to see the finished pics.

    Lets not forget it takes talent to make the first leg to be able to use the copier. Well done Bryan! I have vega envy too!

    More progress today

    Got some more done today, and making mistakes. I find the vinyl material thin as the staples can cut through and the batting is too thick. Then the Bosch Colt router clamp is loose and lets the router slide down from bit vibration, taking too deep a cut when I was rounding over the tops of the legs!
    Some pics from today.
