    Last one, I built this desk in place of an old doorway we closed off, was useless space otherwise. Would have changed a few things now that I've had a few years to look at it but all in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Nice job restoring that uke, but where's the audio clip?

    Whenever I may get up there, I will bring my favorite uke, and play some songs for you.
    You have to sing, though!

    Peace,

    This is a dog hole vise inspired by the Veritas wonder dogs for my daughter's luthier workbench that we made. So far she does mostly bow repair, restored one crushed violin and upgraded a rather odd old Hardanger fiddle.
    Made from 1/2" allthread, a 1/2"bolt, scrap cherry from the bench and some hickory from a stair tread. There is a steel nut potted in the cherry post.

    Now I know how I can make myself feel better about not being able to afford those Veritas WonderDogs I've been hankering for. Thanks, Dave!

    Rob, contact me privately with your contact info. I usually come up 101 and switch to five above San Friskie. What kind of music do you like?
