I built a pair of matching workbenches in my shop a couple of years ago entirely out of pallet wood and they have been a staple of my shop ever sense. Now, ever sense I built them I had the intention of adding a moxon style vise to one of them to help hold work pieces and today is finally that day. To match the rest of the workbench, I of coarse decided to use one of my patented pallet wood laminations. For the clamping mechanism I used pipe clamps, these are very strong, cheap, and easy to source, so they make for a great solution. The vise has about 2" of travel by just from the screw part of the pipe clamps alone which will do the majority of jobs that I need done. For anything larger, I just reach under the bench and release each pipe clamp and pull it out to where I need it. Also worth noting is the fact that on the outer edge of the bench I installed that pipe clamp in further so that I would be able to clamp work at the edge of the bench.

Notable materials & tools used for this build:
- Workbench
- Wood glue
- Pipe clamps (these ones have extra tall jaws, perfect for the vise)
- 3/4″ galvanized pipe for pipe clamps
- 2-part epoxy with pumps
- Circular saw
- Power plane
- Jointing sled
- Screw clamps
- 1-1/16″ forstner drill bit
- Plunge router
