Yesterday I had about an hour of time, and I did not want to get deep into something and have to stop, so I made this! It is one of those portable clamps you hammer into a log so you can sharpen your chain in the woods. It was more of an "I just want to make something" project then anything else. :D

 

The picture pretty much explains how I made it, very simple.

It holds that bar in place very nicely!

That's a cool idea Ryan. Beats going back to the shop to use a vice, or trying to sharpen while it's on the ground. :thumbs:
