Charming old bench… interior designers like to buy those
for shabby chic kitchens.

Those dovetail cuts on the end are certainly unusual…
often there are saw cuts all over the edges of these
old benches, which is what I thought they were at
a glance.

You know, the first thing that occurred to me when I saw that one was that there was just one dog hole on the left side of the vise. Then I noticed the tail vise faces a row of holes that would line up to it. I believe the vises were meant to be swapped from the current configuration.
