Ah yeh, it’s 600mm wide. That’s as wide as my Mill can go. But I think it’s wide enough. It’s the same width as the plans I loosely followed. 

Is it really. It doesn't look that deep to me in the photos. That's perfect then I reckon. My work surfaces in the workshop are all 600 mm, but that's because they are all laminate worktops from Wickes, so you win by default I think. 😀

It’s nice knowing the first log I milled will be in almost daily use.

Th at is pretty cool, I'm quite jealous. 

I tried to make a table out of a slab cut from a stump of an Oak tree I felled in my parents garden. It was a tree that I used to climb a child, so thought it would be nice to keep a part of it rather than turn it all into firewood. Unfortunately, the tree was heavily weighted on one side, and as it dried the tension in the wood literally ripped it to pieces. I kept a small part of it and made a shelf out of it.

Looks great Andy. Well done.
Vice Jaws look a bit thick though. Reduces the amount they open and in my experience that is never quite wide enough.

Cheers. :)

Jaws are a work in progress, they’ve not been screwed in yet. But the thickness they take up is no more than the wood that was screwed to them already. Not sure how they’ll hold up but the wood was gonna end up in the fire anyway.

That looks a lovely work cabin, and a real sturdy workbench.

 

Thanks. smile.png A work in progress.

 

A lean-too and deck area going in as well. Deck area will be 5m x 4.7m. Managed to pick up some roof sheeting 7m long but a wee bit bashed for £30. :)
