Finally finished my Moxon vise. This was a lot of fun. Had some scrap walnut I used for the main body, some oak that I cut the hand wheels from. Then I had some threaded cherry that I had made a clamp with that I wasn’t too happy with so I repurposed them. Wiped it down with a little BLO and poly mixed together followed by a coat of Johnson’s Paste wax. All in all it works good and holds strong. Now I just need to start cutting some dovetails. Thanks for looking.

Wow that is a work of art. Looks like once you have something clamped down it ain’t moving.

Thanks for the nice comments. Willeh, I like the bow ties also, but they’re not for show. One of my glue joints began to fail so I had to add these to hold it together. Thanks again.
