Fort Vancouver bench

Patrick Neal forwarded some detailed pictures of the bench at Fort Vancouver, which was apparently constructed to Nicholson's original specifications.  Here they are:

Patrick says "[t]he bench is 32" high, the top is 30 x 104.5, the legs are true 4 x 4, the stretchers are also 4 x 4, and the skirt and top support boards are nearly a true 2 x 6.  He says the vise needs a guide, demonstrating the wisdom of what Mike Siemsen has done (see below).

  1. While I'm not familiar with Fort Vancouver, it looks like a pretty cool place. TWO beautiful Nicholson's, a shave horse, and a sweet grinding wheel. Looks like my kinda place. Love the shop floor too.
