|The vise clamped to my bench top. Sooner or later I think I will put some holdfast holes in my bench to hold it. For now, the clamps work perfectly.|
Yesterday I cheated on the stool build-off and built my stool early. I work every day this week, including Saturday and Sunday, so there was no other time to build the stool. I can't wait to blog about my build, but I will wait until Saturday to post about it. The only thing about it I will say is it exceeded my expectations.
As far as this vise goes, I did find a use for it on this build. Although my understanding is it excels at workholding for dovetails, I find it also makes a pretty darned good joiner's saddle, you know, a way to hold rectangular stock to plane it into an octagon or into a dowel.
