  1. How to Make a Moxon Vise on the Cheap, in this Woodworking project video we
    are going to learn how to make a Moxson Vise, this project would also be
    easy for a beginner in woodworking to make. http://youtu.be/BW1DTpzXmG8

  2. Hi Warren, I recently subscribed to your channel. Your work is great. Just
    one question… Where did did you get your straight edge? Brand name? 

  3. Very neat. Like your sense of humour too. Thanks for this and your other
    great videos. I’ll think about including this in the workbench I’m
    currently building although I did sell a kidney and bought a York vise too
    install. Cheers, Gary. 

  4. It must be the night for vises. I just created one myself that I’ll be
    uploading soon. Great job. I may be making one of these this weekend. 

  5. Warren, I notice that you’re using your arms alot when you hand plane. If
    you move the piece closer to the edge you can use the mass of your body vs.
    your arms. Additionally, if you have a more aggressive plane like a
    scrub/fore plane you can lob off more material faster. All of this is
    described in Moxon’s book, Mechanick Exercises =)

  6. A simple trick for deal with a cupped board in future projects:

    Turn the cup downward on the table saw and make your rip cuts BEFORE
    planing. This effectively erduces the amount of cupping for each piece,
    roughly by the number of rips (i.e., rip in half reduces cupping by 1/2,
    ripping into 5 stips reduces cupping by 80%, etc.).

    With this trick, each face is reduced in area, therebye reducint the
    relative amount of cupping on any given piece. You will be able to remove
    less material in the milling process, and effectively reduce the workload
    to that point. It is an old hand tool trick that is equally valid for
    power tools.

  7. Warren, nice vice & almost identical to the one I built. Where the
    threaded rod goes through the vice front & back I added some bronze
    bushings to keep the threads from wearing away the wood. No evidence of
    wear in two years. How is your’s holding up?

  8. You are very fun to watch. Hope you come out with more videos. You’re my
    new favorite wood worker on youtube.

  9. Lol loved the look on your face when you ran the wood through the
    thicknesser, lit up like a little kid. New subscriber here… I sort of had
    to it would just be un-Australian of me if I didn’t. Love your work mate,
    hope to see more videos from you.
