How did I build the vice?

Any chance of a few pictures and a bit more detail as to how you made the vice. I’ve recently made a similar bench and I’ve got a cheapo quick release vice that I’m not that happy with and if I can replace it for £20, I’d be a happy man. Matthew Moore.

English Workbench

With the tool chest done and the tools finding their home within it my attention is drawn to the next project. A workbench has been the next most logical project to undertake although I have been finding it difficult to choose between the “French” and “British” style of workbench. Well today that’s changed. While working away from the workshop erecting a hardwood conservatory I discovered this lovely old British style workbench in our clients workshop.
