after using the the bench i recently finish,ive been running into situation that required a way to hold your work piece while planing it.
i was given a wood for my bench and plywood,
it was my very first bench and i out grew the capability of the bench right away.
and found my self building jigs just to hold my work piece,.and it became a pain every time i wanted to do some work.
this is the bench i made
anyway from all the suggestion of all LUMBERJOCKS and reading the blog workbench smack down
i decided to replace the top of my work bnech
and decided to incorporate a wagon vise.
so the first order of the wagon vise is to design it and i think i came up with a simple design.
here i have a plate of steel
12”L X 1-1/8 H x 5/16
