My Roubo Bench Journey #27: Temporary Leg Vise Installation

2121 views and 0 favorites in

I drilled the hole in the leg for the leg vise and installed the hardware, then I added a spare piece of wood as the chop.

First impression is that the handle is low but time will tell. I still need to add the mortise in the leg for the guide. And I need to find a properly sized piece of wood for the chop.
Also plan to add the dog holes in the next day or two.

I placed it 11" from the top of the bench top. I am 5’7" so the bench is not tall in the first place. It is my first time using a leg vise so it will take time to get used to it.
