I’ve wanted a Moxon vise for some time and finally pulled the trigger. I know Red Oak is not the preferred material but it’s what I had on hand. I didn’t want to drive to Boise and back for hard maple. It’s 250 mile round trip. I also did something else different I used Black Walnut Danish oil and I gave it a couple of Poly varnish. I’m sure everyone can tell that’s Benchcrafted hardware. I got the design and plans from a guy on You Tube, Dustin Penner. It’s probably not to everybody’s liking, but I’m pretty sure it’ll suit my needs. Only two more big projects on my list that I start using this to get proficient at hand cut dovetails.

Great vise Burlybob!
Looks like you’ll get plenty of use out of it.
Seems like the oak will be fine and it turned out great.

Super nice vise Burlybob! I’m sure it’s going to do everything you need it to do!

Neat job BB... nice finish… and it looks like the ROak didn’t desert you when you BWDO and Polyed it… if only it would last in that pristine condition…

However, I must ask… why abandon that excellent D4R, for a time and labour intensive undertaking.

LBD, I’m not going to abandon that D4R. I just wasn’t to try something new. I’m always trying to learn new things and new ways of doing things. Well I mean to say, things and techniques that are new to me.

About the stain and poly, guess you could say I do things that suit me not others. You right about wishing it could stay that way. But it would just be a decoration not a valued, well used tool.

Nice Moxon, like that spacious mouth, and a back deck big enough to party on. I’m bettin you could hand cut a wider DT than that D4r could consider.

Enjoy the journey.

You comment started off with great admiration from me, trSN... however a wider DT had me reaching for me vino… for such wide DT, you’d need a couple of bottles of 1L Titebond (Slow) and the glue would set about 1/4 into the glue-up.
