The Secrets of the Leg Vise Revealed!!


If you watch very closely at the 0:11 to approximately 00:13 second mark, you may just see for yourself the secrets finally revealed of the traditional leg vise. So, this is what the 'experts' were talking about, in all of the fancy magazines all of this time!
Seriously though...Imagine working wood in this way; relaxed, focused and at perfect ease with the wood, the tool and the joinery. Incredible...
We all can learn something from this, regardless of the work you do.


  1. I imagine getting that close to the wood, with that much contact gives you an incredable sense of feedback and feel. I just don't think I could stand up again for a while after that.

  2. Tom, I so enjoy your woodworking and the different direction you point your reader. It is what this very, very novice aspires to.

  3. Vic,
    Thanks so much for the comments. It's nice to know people are reading, thinking and dreaming...
    Keep it going.
