Poor Man’s Moxon Vise

Yesterday I was able to take some construction grade 2 x 10’s spare 4′ sections, along with a piece of poplar I had and create what I call the Poor Man’s Moxon Vise. I simply found two pieces that mated well, they were not from the same original board and added the poplar clamping beam. Once that was completed I simply clamped the poplar to my folding top and then use two additional cheap-o clamps to pinch my work. It worked really well. In due time I’ll upgrade, but until then I have something to train on how to cut dovetails.
