Lovingly made. A guy like me would have just settled for steel screws.

It's fun to find one of my projects here!  Some quick corrections to the "description" above.  The vise is made of 6/4 hickory. The back ledge is made from 4/4 red oak. The screws were turned from hickory as well and were tapped with a 1 1/2" Woodcraft tap box.  I did three posts about building this vise on my Blog and you can read them here:  http://insidetheworkshop.blogspot.com/search/label/Moxon%20Vise This has become one of my favorite shop bench aids. Thanks for the recognition.  Derek Olson Oldwolf Workshop Studio
