Living on the edge without a vise
I don't have a nice woodworking vise, so when gluing some edge-banding to a plywood shelf recently, I had to improvise a way to hold the shelf on edge. I C-clamped two blocks of 2x4 scrap to my bench, as shown below, and then clamped the shelf to these blocks. I attached the banding, and trimmed it flush with my laminate trimmer without moving the shelf.
