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…..... 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.
