Inspired by a project published in Woodworker’s Journal magazine, I made this wedge bench vise using the 3/4’’ thick MDF shown scraps. The larger, square, approximately 14’’ by 18’’, is the base.
The cut made along the diagonal is beveled between 25-30°, and all sharp beveled edges are sanded.
The vise hooked against the workbench, a piece of wood sits against the right stop and the wedge is jammed towards the back using a dead blow hammer.
I hope you’ll like my version.
