Moans of despair! Loud. "There are too many tools
on the bench to allow for all the requisite position changes
of the stock."
I feel your pain! My 4 X 8 foot bench has the same disease. Currently
working on the medicine cabinet from that very dark, very hot place. My
neighbor wanted to make a cabinet around a glass front cabinet door, one
of two. First one was rabidly out of square, so I took the other. But
it was not square either, though not as bad. Built a jig on the bench
top, built a face frame. Dowelling jig failure. Pulled it apart and
rebuilt. That's when I discovered my framing square wasn't square.
Pulled that one apart too. Ah Hah! Pulled out the #100 framing vise,
and guess what? It isn't square either. (How then, does it build
problem free picture frames?!) Enter the horizontal boring machine.
Face frame no assembled!
