Vise details

Tonight I snuck out into the shop and worked on my leg vise.  First I trimmed off the top of the vise to make it level with the bench top.

Then I needed to detail the top front.  I watch Mark do this part on his vise and he used a grinder.  I don’t have a grinder, so I resorted to my hand plane.

I drew a pencil line on both face and planed the edge away staying between the lines.  Obviously, I made sure to plane from both sides so I didn’t blow out the end grain. This is how it turned out.
