One very basic set up for hand saws simply involves two 26″ lengths of dressed 4″ x 1-1/2″ timber assembled in the form of a lightweight Moxon vise with 2 coach bolts, washers and wing nuts forming the adjuster.  Contour the underside at each end of the vise to allow for saw handles to clear the vise.  One side of the resulting saw vise forms the head of a T, which in turn can be clamped within a bench vise.

I don’t like the type Lie Neilsen suggests.
