Yep, I'm a day late but I'm going to kick off Get Woodworking Week. I just completed the leg vise for my bench so now I, or someone else, can work on the other side of the bench. It's just a simple leg vise, no pin board, or other mechanisms for the bottom, I have a fan deck of plastic cards to put on the floor to keep it parallel. I'm likely going to round the top over at some point. The top 6" of the chop is raised a little from the face and lined with some leather.

Now for the giveaway! Like TNYW on Facebook during February and have a chance to win a handsaw! I've got two 8pt 26" crosscut saws to give away, cleaned up and sharpened. In fact, one of them is the Disston D-23 that's on the rescue tools page. The other is a fine Warranted Superior saw. The winners will be selected at random from those that Like us on Facebook during the month of Feb. Selection will be made the first week of March and winners will be contacted for shipping information. Sorry, the contest is only open to those in the contiguous 48 states of the US. I only have so much shipping money, certainly you understand.
Tomorrow, fun woodworking books.
