The numbered photos show the following:
- Use the hand screw outboard to hold angled stock for sawing.
- Use the hand screw mounted inboard for planing or assembly
- Use the right side and ledger strip with "c" clamp to hold stock for square crosscuts.
- Use the hand screw mounted inboard to hold parts for assembly. In this case the hand screw serves admirably as a vise.
- Mount the stock with "c" clamps to the left side of the bench and saw from behind. Note the cut out that allows for the saw to travel without hitting the hand.
- The last photo shows the hand screw mounted with carriage bolts and plastic knobs.
You can see that I'm working toward a cost per student list of tools for those hoping to introduce woodworking in their school. For those hoping to simply add woodworking as a center in an arts complex, thus expanding the student's creative options, two or three benches might suffice, as all students may not be sawing and building at the same time.
Make, fix, create and improve the chances that others learn likewise.
