Well done and you almost had me thinking it could float in the air with the first picture .
Nice place to use up some scrap and make it into a useful vise .

Beautiful! That location is right up my alley, too. I never thought to subject my beautiful finished product to the snow directly :) makes a nice backdrop…

Okay, please tell us where you got the handles from, I’m withholding my drooling, fawning compliments until you tell us :-)

Seriously. I’m interested in the handles too.

How is the threaded rod attached to the bench?

For the Jocks interested in the hand wheels this thread from another site covers a lot of info, especially in the comments.

Wonderful project. Looks durable and water resistant perhaps.
