The portable shoulder vise, adapted from a similar design I came across, can be mounted with holdfasts on a workbench or on a solid table with a long clamp.
For joinery, I used the Dominoes. You can use dowels, mortise & tenon etc. The Domino joiner from Festool is a joinery tool that is worth investing in if you are looking for consistent, quick and fool-proof results.
Made mainly using scrap supplies (wood and rod and nuts) and a press screw from Lee Valley Tools (9” Press Screw – 13F17.01). The ratchet screwdriver seen in the picture is also from Lee Valley (88K11.10), a very handy tool when you need it.
Total cost: $30 Cdn plus a weekend of shop time
