Everyone can use a metalworking vise, and woodworkers are no exception. The problem is often having it mounted to your woodworking bench permanently means it is in the way a lot of the time. Most people that mount the vise to their woodworking bench mount it to a back corner, where it is hard to access from both sides, so it cuts down on the vises functionality as well.

My solution, which I have seen several times over the past 20 years in several different designs, is to mount the vise to a block that can be clamped in one of your woodworking vises, then taken off the bench when not needed.

Simple, effective, and gets the job done!
