Shop-Made Miter Vise

With this rugged miter vise, clamping perfect gap-free miters is a snap.

Miter joints are some of the toughest joints to glue up. The angled pieces tend to slip around as you apply clamping pressure. And getting a flush, gap-free joint often ends up more like a juggling act. But with this miter vise, clamping miters is a snap. There are a lot of features packed into this capable vise. But what stands out is the stout construction. The thick blocks of hard maple and Baltic birch plywood will stand up to heavy use. Don’t worry. As you’ll see, building it isn’t complicated and won’t take much time.
