I go over two techniques to get around with not having a tail vise. If you have other ways, feel free to share them in the comments.

Excellent solution and good video. Another way to do it might be to make the top for the bench dog in a cam (teardrop) shape so you can just rotate it into the workpiece to lock it into place. Same principal, but eliminates the need for a separate wedge.

Good solution. Wedges are always handy.

A couple other ways I’ve saved

Nice, simple, I like it.
