Leg Vise and Parallel Guide

I got to work on the leg vise today and started by laying out the holes in the parallel guide.   The parallel guide will sit at the bottom of the leg vise chop and keep the chop parallel to the left front leg of the vise.

The hole lay out was done using the template from Benchcraft and the tip of my brad point drill bit.

Once the holes were drilled, I chamfered the hole edges.

Then I cut out the shape of the parallel guide tail shape on the band saw.

The final guide after inserting into the chop.

Now I need to shape the chop.
