Workbench expansion gives you a leg up

Bench vise helps support extra-wide projects.

I was building a corner cabinet when I realized my workbench wasn't quite wide enough for the project. To solve the problem, I enlisted my bench vise to create a temporary workbench addition, as shown.

The extension top is a separate, compact table that's quickly but firmly held in place by the vise. To install it, I first use the bench vise to align the surface of the extension flush with the benchtop. Then I use the leveler on the bottom of the leg to firmly position the rest of the extension and take some of the pressure off the vise.
