Plans for Guitar Vice

In kitting out my workshop with guitar luthier tools, I really wanted to get one of these but they seem only to be available in the USA and the postage is as much as the vice so I decided to build my own.

Here are some very loose plans I sketched for the vice I built from oak firewood!:

Extremely useful when carving the cello necks too.
