Announcing Our April 2016 Workbench Idea

Our April 2016 Workbench Idea is a special one featuring our new Moxon wood vise.  This comes to us from Daniel C. an accomplished chair builder from Naples, Maine who sums it up best by saying: “Your Moxon vise is tougher than a Maine boiled owl!!! Nice work.”

What more can we say, so all you chair builders out there, take a look!

Started chair building 20 years ago. Taught by Mike Dunbar. Have a fully equipped chair workshop on the shore of Brandy pond , Maine.

Couldn’t be happier with the vise. Allows me to shape at any angle the wide chair seats with draw knife and spoke shave. Easy to change grain angles.

Can knife and shave with some force to shape all sides of the Windsor sack back chair seat. I pulled and tugged the chair seat sides with the drawknife – no problem.

Your Moxon vise is tougher than a Maine boiled owl!!! Nice work.
