  1. Projects "Mini" Portable Workbench

    Just another project to keep busy. Since I don't have a "dedicated shop" anymore, I can take the portable workbench to wherever I need it.
  2. Projects Moxon Vise

    I finally decided to upgrade my woodworking environment as many people kindly suggested. I've never owned or used a moxon vise so there were quite a bit of "I should have" after finishing this project but overall, I'm happy with it and I really learned a lot by this project. It was also my...
  3. Cheap, Strong, Easy Sliding Moxon Vise

    I've wanted a decent vise setup for a long time now but without a work surface it was pointless. Now that I have a work table I looked at my options. An under mount vise wouldn't work because my table top isn't supported all the way around. A moxon vise would work but the nice hardware kits...
  4. All wood moxon vise

    So after the two boxes I made for my son, I decided I needed a moxon vise to help with dovetailing. Box: I thought I could make it myself, so I actually started carving the wheels I wanted out of a super thick off cut of walnut before I even had a real plan of attack. I usually work with a...
  5. Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench

    Hello my friends !, after finishing this work, I present here my project of a Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench. It was built using only hand tools at all steps. The entire project was documented with specific details, in three entries here in my blog with explanations and pictures, and in turn these...
  6. Maple Moxon Vise and Bench Hanger

    One of my Christmas presents this year was a BenchCrafted Moxon Vise hardware kit. I've been travelling quite a bit for work so I just finished putting it all together - but man I love this thing. I used Hard Maple with mahogany accents. The basic design is similar to the base plans that come...
  7. Moxon Vise

    I completed this build in August of 2018. I bought the Benchcrafted hardware for this moxon vise around the same time I bought the leg vise hardware (2yrs ago). At the time I bought the wood and began working on the chops. Fast forward 2yrs, the chops were still sitting under my assembly...
  8. Moxon vise retrofit (anti-racking system)

    I have previously posted my moxon vise build and I have used it extensively. It is my "go to" vise for about everything. However, one of its downsides was the amount of racking I would get if I was not placing a board all the way down (for dovetailing) but was just using the top of the vise to...
  9. Moxon Style Vise

    This is a moxon style vise that I made for one of my workbenches. My quick release 12" vise is on my other bench, and while it is great, I wanted something with more capacity. I initially intended to use 3/4" all thread, but saw a video on YouTube where a lot of these barbells are 1" acme...
  10. Christmas Present for a Friend

    I have a friend who has gotten into woodworking, and over the past couple of years I've enjoyed teaching him techniques - particularly with hand tools. Last year he moved away, and doesn't have a proper bench for hand tool work, so for Christmas this year I built him a Moxon vise. The oak was...
  11. Moxon Joinery bench

    My regular woodworking bench is at the perfect hight for planing wood, but I wanted something a little bit higher for doing more detailed work such as carving or joinery. The moxon vise is made with 3/4" acme threaded rod and the matching nuts, which I embedded behind the non-moving wood jaw...
  12. Moxon Vise Bench

    I had been planning one of these for a very long time, but never could decide what to use. I had pretty much settled on using veneer press screws, but they aren't cheap. Shout out to PlanBWoodworks for the idea to use these killer dumb bell screws from Walmart. They are perfect and they were...
  13. Moxon Vise on the cheap

    I was wanting to learn how to make dovetail joints and get some practice. I asked LJ what type of vise would fit my basic workbench and that is where I first heard of a Moxon Vise. Not wanting to invest a huge amount of money on a learning project I settled on the following. All ideas are from...
  14. Bench on Bench - Bench Raiser - Moxon Vise

    One of the handiest additions I've made to the bench… Raising the work just a tad makes cutting and chopping dovetails SO much easier. A little more detail is at http://www.scrgeek.com/woodwork/bob.html
  15. Dovetailing Jigs, Moxon Vise and Shooting Boards

    I am transitioning from power tools to hand tools. I will end up being one of those hybrid woodworkers that uses both power tools and hand tools on any given project. However, I wanted to learn how to cut dovetails by hand and these jigs and vise have really helped me tremedously. That and...
  16. Moxon Mini-Bench

    This here's a little Moxon vise attached to a mini-bench I built with an oak stair tread and 4×4 cutoffs for legs (with one leg made of a couple of 2×4s screwed together). To make the vise, I used threaded rod and nuts and washers embedded in poplar. I then tightened the nuts against each...
  17. Moxon Vise & Lamb's Tongue

    My favorite shop tool. 8/4 air dried maple from my Amish friends in Ohio. Benchcrafted hardware. Works beautifully and saves my back on a daily basis! The plans for the Moxon vise can be found on the Benchcrafted website for free, so if you're interested in building this vise I would suggest...
  18. Quickie Moxon Vise

    Since I have a lot of dovetails in my next project, I wanted a Moxon Vise for my new workbench. I used a couple of old 1/2" pipe clamps, also picked up a 2×6 at the BORG and processed it to length, four squared the two face pieces and ripped down the back brace piece. A couple of F Style...
  19. Moxon Vise

    Since I've jumped on the hand tools bandwagon, I've found myself in dire need of various workbench accessories, let alone a new workbench. Here's one of the first projects I've built to help me use my tools more efficiently: a Moxon vise. There have been some great versions of this type of vise...
  20. Another Moxon Vise

    Shop improvement No. 4. Hurray for Lumberjocks, there has been a number of vise posts on lately. That jogged my memory, I had a few vise screws I bought a number of years ago to make a vise with a bike chain between the two so you only had one handle. well it didn't happen. When I saw these...
