The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Interesting video, but talk about making a short story long.
Anyway, I alwasy made mine out of plywood and any hardwood scraps that were handy. I used mine for planing, sawing, chiseling and even belt sanding. Mine also were never that small. You can even make one to fit the corner of your bench.

Drill a hole in it and hang it up somewhere handy.

How is the build of the work bench going? This was the first post I started to read in December and what made me decide to join this forum. Fantastic progress so far.

It's still going! I'm in the midst of cutting the mortises and tenons for the second set of legs. Slow going this weekend but on the plus side the quality of my joints is getting much better.

Apologies for the lack of updates. I've been having a bit of insomnia and haven't been motivated to work in the evening. But! I got into the office today and knocked out two tenons for the last stretcher of the second pair of legs.

I think I finally have the hang of them. The process of splitting away the offcuts is finally clicking, and I think I understand the mechanics of wood grain that was causing me to go too deep before. What do you think?

I did this in about an hour and a half, which is encouraging because normally a tenon will take me longer and won't look this good. Faster and better is a solid combo! The best thing is how repeatable it felt. Each of the four tenon faces took about the same amount of time and look about as good. So, mortises tomorrow night, hopefully. Then one last pair of long stretchers, assembly, and finishing.
