Looks good, but you need to sweep your shop!

Love it! Where did you get the crank handles?

Well done and you almost had me thinking it could float in the air with the first picture .
Nice place to use up some scrap and make it into a useful vise .

Beautiful! That location is right up my alley, too. I never thought to subject my beautiful finished product to the snow directly :) makes a nice backdrop…

Okay, please tell us where you got the handles from, I’m withholding my drooling, fawning compliments until you tell us :-)

Seriously. I’m interested in the handles too.

How is the threaded rod attached to the bench?

For the Jocks interested in the hand wheels this thread from another site covers a lot of info, especially in the comments.

Wonderful project. Looks durable and water resistant perhaps.
