I’ve got to finish this second guitar.  I have promised to give it to my daughter Rachel, and I have been avoiding the task of sanding and buffing the finish.  I’m at the point where I need to secure the guitar so I can dig into the rim/sides.  I decided to build a bench mounted vise much like the one I saw at Charles Fox’s workshop.


I purchased two 7″ hardware kits, essentially press screws on plates, and attached radiused boards like in the photo, and will mount to my small workbench against the west wall.  Once I get it installed, I’ll post a photo.
