Made the handle using the cut offs from the angled cut sides glued up with a strip of curly maple sandwiched between. My neighbor was nice enough to turn it for me on his lathe since I don’t have one. Finished with danish oil. Now I’m ready for hand cut dovetails!

The handle, vise, and woodworkers bench look, 1st class, a job well done. Almost too pretty to use, just kinda want to stand around and look at it. I’m sure you’ll get lots of use, building some great projects as the years go by. Thanks for inspiring

Scott. This a great addition to your bench. I’m getting ready to build a bench this year. I hope mine turns out as good. Thanks for sharing.

Everyone needs at least on good vice ... I mean vise and this is certainly one!
