  • DIY Carving Vise

    156C0AF8-39B0-47E6-B30A-AB36129DDE18.jpeg Turn any secured clamping devise into a carving vise. This is my spin on a carving vise that appeared in the April May 2005 Canadian Woodworking Magazine.

      Glad to see it. I haven't used a vise yet but have for other woodworking projects. My carvings are usually small 1.5 X 1.5 and less.

          Thanks for this.

          It's a good idea, but I'm thinking it might be even more useful if the block that goes in the vise was octagonal.

            Ron, if the dowel can be rotated in the block, what would making the block octagonal add? I know I'm missing the point here, but that's nothing new!

              Hey Arthur . . . I was assuming the dowel was fixed in place at both ends (pressure of vise at the bottom . . glue at the top).

              I would think the piece might move when being carved if the piece rotated on the dowel . . . but maybe not.

                Rontana,
                I think if you look at all 4 photos it should clear that up for you. Arthur is right the design allows that by loosening the vise it will pivot left or right on the dowels extending out ether side and the main dowel or old mop handle in this case rotates to any position while the collar keeps it vertically stable while adjusting. And yes this DIY project is not the vise you want to use to secure a large project or do work that’s going to require a mallet. But if you’re wondering about carving with a vise you can try it out for less than a buck. Except for a couple of hardwood dowels and one screw its made from scrap wood.

                    Like this ... I saw this kind of block also being used in the famous school Boule in Paris.
