I have moved back to Oregon from Costa Rica and now have a small shop in our utility room…....My son gave me some Bubinga wood for a couple of end tables I was building so I thought I would build a vise with the scraps to give to him…........I followed the plans from John Heisz on Youtube….....https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjA8vRlL1c7BDixQRJ39-LQ......with some modifications as far as size and type of woods, Bubinga, Maple, and Popular for accents….....John’s woodworking site is outstanding and you should check it out….......

-- Let's see......what can I use this for?

Really nice project but too pretty to use me thinks.
Thanks for sharing.
Was just thinking and that can get dangerous but if these are the scraps I want to see the main project, please.
