When Jeff Miller built a small bench about a year ago to test two new vises from BenchCrafted, he little realized he would love the vises so much he'd soon be building a full-size bench to live up to their potential. The leg vise and wagon vise held more securely and were easier to adjust than any other vises he had used. So to showcase these powerhouses, he built a modified Roubo bench with a beefy base, a heavy top, and blocky legs flush to the front edge of the benchtop. Here's how to make one of your own, plus tips for installing these two excellent vises.
