Though I have a workbench with two smaller vises I built another one based on the video in Jay Bates’ channel.
The moxon vise has a much broader clamping capacity – but maybe more importantly it raises the work piece higher which is more convenient in a lot of circumstances. Like Jay I made a slot on each side so I can screw the base to various places on my benches. The sliding mechanism allows it to be pulled flush to the table top to clamp large boards vertically or push it back to save space when working with smaller pieces.
Jay used glued-up ply whereas I took the most ugly and discolored pieces from my stock of maple – a nice and useful piece of tool nevertheless :-)
