B&C (Brink & Cotton) 176 Vise - 0 replies

I visited a flea market on Labor Day and brought home a small 6” vise for $10.

Tongue and Groove without Match Plane? - 16 replies

I’m preparing to build a wall mounted plane till, and I’m going to glue up a fairly wide panel for the back of the till. I’m leery just jointing and gluing the boards together, so I’m thinking about tongue and groove joinery. Problem is, I don’t own a T&G plane set…is there another way to do it? All I have...
