Here are some photos of my bench utilizing your vise screw kit.

It is based on the design by Bob Lang in Popular Woodworking, but I decided to install a leg vise and a sliding deadman. It is made entirely of white ash (except the guide bar is quartersawn white oak) and has the reversible tool trays like the original design. I added the “wings” to the leg behind the vise chop to distribute the clamping pressure across the leg cross section. Finish is a 3 coat wipe-on oil/varnish mixture. The vise screw kit is a great complement to any workbench. The quality of the manufacturing of this kit was just exceptional.

Regards,
Harold S. – Louisville, Kentucky
