More Workbench Materials

I went out and bought some construction lumber for the base today. I really wanted the 12'' x 16' pieces, but the wouldn't fit on the car. They're mostly 8" wide, and 10' long. One is 10" wide. I 'll find a better place for them and let them acclimate while I work on the top. I also cut about 2" out of the leg vise screw. To splice the screw, I drilled matching holes and used a dowel as a floating tenon. I then pegged the dowel so it wouldn't break. On the left is the piece I cut out. It has no threads on it at all.
