Here's an interesting Moxon vice using Bristol levers which were bought from Tools for Working Wood. Instead of using the Bench Crafted kit with cast iron handles these have adjustable Bristol levers. They also sell the whole vice complete with the wood, but that takes all the fun out of it!
James prepared everything with hand tools, the only machine being used was the drill press. That's hard work but a great way to get used to your hand plane.
Below is the shared workshop James uses, which has a collection of varied trades and looks to be very sociable as well as a cost effective way of working.
Here's Kens pine tool chest with nice dovetailed corners and integrated wooden handles. The sides have been glued up from a number of pieces which is extra work but should give nice stable boards. Time to do the interior fitting out.
