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.

Enlarging the image NEVER works for me, and the pop-up request to reorder when I just placed my first order is maddening!!!

Has nothing to do with pop-ups. A pop-up trying to sell subscriptions comes up right before the article.

works for me. You should check your computer and make sure that it allows pop-up windows. If that feature is turned off then enlarge won't work.

Why is it that of all the email I get re: woodworking, that WOOD magazine is the only publisher that can't get the coding done correctly so that the ENLARGE IMAGE option works??? OH GREAT! Now in order to submit a comment you HAVE to watch another commercial and type in the sponsors product name before the submission can be done. What a bunch of revenue hoors.
