I was in need of a more comfortable way to chop and saw dovetails by hand. The last project had me bending over for so long I thought I might just get stuck in this position. So by making this bech of ash (work top) and the base ( Doug Fir) just over 12” it brought my chisel work up to a more comfortable hright without changing the height to plane boards. The vise allows me to hold boards while I saw out between the pins. Along with the iron holddown to chop out the tails. I really find this a great tool addition to hand work.
