Every day a guilty pleasure is opening up the latest Contemporist email showing the latest in architectural and design niceties, most of which I’ll never be able to afford but which definitely provide a lot of inspiration. They had a kitchen on there this week that had, in my humble opinion, a very out of place feature on the countertop. Granted, this is a great looking vise – I’m just not sure what it’s being used for in this situation. Hopefully others here you’ll get a chuckle as I did and wonder what the purpose of it is in this situation. I like the one on the page itself – “cracking nuts”.

Just out of view is the table saw, jointer, planer, ... A modern kitchen that doubles as a woodworking shop!
