Okay so in squaring my stock and the issue of holding the stock and frequently needing to check my progress means locking it in the vise ,planing , unlocking , checking …..locking it in the vise, planing …you get the picture . And because at the moment i’m using a twin screw vise it seem it can be just a bit more efficient.
Answer; a sticking board and of course i had to modify the concept . So what i needed was a zip ~fast means of clamping (both the face and edges) . Enter the humble cam, as you can see a simple turn of the lever enough pressure is applied to the stock to allow me to work it and check it so effectively that i wore my wrist out in short fashion (2 whole days) enter , ice , turmeric and ginger . The point being this works fantastically

concerning the last picture, as you square your stock by hand a good test of consistency is ~ will it stack square ?.
because any minuscule error in the work will show up (compounded) in a stack .
each piece has to be dead flat and dead square . And doing this by hand is of no small task ,but the results are unparalleled when correct , now weather or not you find that satisfying or not , that is up to you , all i know is this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while,,,,,{for my fellow knuckle draggers} [(:{>

While I appreciate what you did, I abandoned that idea and just use a pop-up benchstop for the same work. If I’m working wider wood, I use a thin stop bar dropped into two dog holes and adjust my push stroke to suit. No need for cams or anything else to hold the work-piece. Just a bit of practiced skill. If I need to make cross grain cuts, I drop another stop bar longitudinally into adjacent dog holes and viola! I’m a big fan of simplicity.
