The Popular Woodworking Magazine (Dec. 2010) featured a Moxon’s Bench Vise. I found it a great clamping jig for dovetailing, in addition to other types of clamping work.
I changed the measurements based on the scraps (maple) I had, and instead of threaded wooden screws, I used hex. bolts and bolt knobs (I’ve been looking for ways to use some of the hardware pieces I have – http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=65642&cat=1,44047&ap=1 ). Another change I’ve made is I drilled two more holes so I can reposition the bolts to increase the clamping capacity. For optimal flexibility or versatility, slots can be cut instead of holes.
You can find more info. about this vise here, if you don’t have the magazine: http://blog.woodworking-magazine.com/blog/Joseph+Moxons+Doublescrew+Vise.aspx
