I just stumbled across these pictures and I though I’d share. During my Japanese saw horse project all I had to work on was a shop bench and an old workmate. I needed to do some planing, and I couldn’t get a setup that was sturdy enough.
So I remember reading the Toshio odate book about how they would just slam a board into a wall or huge stump to provide a planing beam.
I did the same thing here. Clamped a 2×4 in the workmate and pushed it up against the wall. Then I used the plastic dogs to hold a plane stop… it actually worked pretty good.
Not a bad solution until I have a real bench with a vice.
