Incredibly fine bit of woodworking. +1 to Justin’s comment above, also you could add smackdown to your project tags. BTW, Lake Erie vise?

thanks for the kind words. milk paint on the LVL legs, ash top with mahogany strips to break up the looks
the sliding deadman; is in the shape of a wine bottle, do to living in Napa valley, leg vise is from Lake Erie, end vise is a tool I bought in 1974; still works great and just couldn’t part with it. square dog holes, maple TG bottom boards, gramnacy hold fasts, built out the “SHWARZ’S” book of course. It was a fun build; a necessary TOOL to have; that I didn’t know, what, I didn’t know I was missing. so now I know…
