Subject:
no leg/front vice? no problem *PIC*

Joseph Piotrowski
2 benchdogs and a holdfast ( picture listening to Beck, where it at) i'm twisted :)

my el cheapo bench has no leg vice or front vice. i need to rig up one to really make it useful but a quick and dirty solution seams to work fine for some 4/4 wood.

i drilled a dog hole in the end vice and in the apron. i then added a dog hole for a holdfast in the supporting leg.

overall i was able to plane without the board slipping. this should hold up until i manufacture a better solution or better bench!

just over sharing :)
