‘Moxon’ is the popular term given to the style of a twin screw vise that is often featured on the workbenches of European woodworkers; dating as far back as the 17th Century. As a demountable bench top accessory, it can be used to elevate items to a more comfortable height for sawing a variety of joinery components. While the basic two jaw variety is a popular and efficient system today, it’s still a bit of a one trick pony. The Lowfat Roubo version however, features a mini bench top that’s anchored to the back jaw allowing more options for controlled transfer of dovetail layouts and waste removal later on. This two day class will focus on making strong dovetail joints with the option to try your hand at a hound’s tooth pattern. Students will spend time considering the optimum orientation of components for strength and function while building a dedicated dovetail workstation like no other. There’s a lot to cover in just two days so students would benefit from having completed a dovetail course prior to this one.
