Made of Beach. The tail vise is the Veritas end vise that has a quick release. The face vise is actually a cool piece of work from Hovarter vises ( . It is a quick release 26” behemoth. Clamps down like a mean pit bull.

Hopefully will get around to building some shelves and drawers, but right now I really want to take ‘er for a run around the block with a good G&G table build.

I like it. Can we see some more pictures?

How was the install of the Veritas sliding tail vise? It looks pretty simple and I’m considering buying one.
