This is a Moxon vise I made for a friend and fellow lumberjock, edwardsk28.
It is similar to many other Moxon vises. This was made with 1/2 and 3/4 inch Baltic birch plywood laminated to give vise jaws 2 inches thick and 6 inches high, and a base 1 1/2 inches thick by 6 inches wide. The opening is 24 1/2 inches wide, the jaws are 32 1/2 inches long and the base is 36 inches long to allow for a clamping surface at each end. To allow for flexibility of use the base is lag bolted to the underside of the back jaw. This puts the top of the vise about 7 1/2 inches above the bench top. The clamping mechanism is a pair of 1/2 inches Pony brand pipe clamps with 18 inch pipes.
I left edge treatments, rounding and the like, to the recipient.
Thanks for looking in and have a great day, lumberjocks.
