Traditionally a woodworking bench had a leg vise. There are several companies that will provide kits for make a vise or you can do like Jay Bates and make your own.

I am continueing work on the jewel box, to day I made the drawer pulls, they are contrasting colour wood like the trim on the top and the third drawer. Making this project is taking forever because I am not working to a plan. If I am in a hurry then I draw and plan and a cutting list. With this project everything is a one off. Each of the drawers is a different depth and so far all three have different types of reinforment in them, I can do this because there is no time dead line. Once this is finished I have another project very similiar to make and it will be done more efficiently and quickly because it isn't good to keep a customer waiting.
