Wagon Vises At Work
Last fall we debuted the Benchcrafted Tail Vise.
Since then we've shipped vises to everyone from beginning woodworkers building their first bench, to woodworking schools and seasoned professionals. We received glowing reviews from the likes of Chris Schwarz of Popular Woodworking (check out his review here) who put one in his own Roubo bench (the very bench that started a huge rebirth of this bench style), and infill plane maker Ron Brese of Brese Plane.
After a few months, the Benchcrafted Tail Vise is starting to pop up in benches across the country and around the world (yes, our tail vise has gone as far as Japan!).
One such place to see one of our vises at work is the Renaissance Woodworker blog, written by Shannon Rogers of Rogers Fine Woodworking. Shannon is building a Roubo bench featuring our tail vise. (that's one of his massive Ash bench legs above). We're looking forward to seeing Shannon's completed bench.
We've put out a call for submissions for vise customers' bench projects. Please send us pictures and commentary, blog or forum posts about your project featuring the Benchcrafted Tail Vise. Every submission gets a 10% discount on your next order. And that includes vises.
