Graham Haydon builds a simple tool tote that packs a lot – in part because it's a quick project that won't stretch over months of shop time (unlike others).
I'm jointing the edges of these two pieces of Ash, prepping them for glue up. I don't have a sliding deadman for my workbench, so I came up with this simple solution using a wooden screw clamp. I'm sure it's been done before, it's really effective. If needed, a holdfast could be added on top of the clamp to really cinch things down. It wasn't necessary this time around. #woodwork #workbench #JaguarXK120 #classiccar
‘Bench Bull’ – The Jack of All Bench Jigs, Part 3
This small Bench bull is made from a few pieces of The rectangular gap in the middle allows for the insertion of a middle clamp.
I'm fascinated by this inexpensive and effective way of building a leg vise. Could also be used with Benchcrafted Criss Cross if you want to spend the money. By the way, it is not electric in spite of the cord!
