    And your papaw JC would too! Especially the fact you recycled the vise! 👍😊

    @Danny haha papaw JC would love the office. Recycled everything—bourbon barrel tables, barn tin, coolers used as tables, old crates holding kitchen supplies.

    Cool story. I have an anvil with my great grandpa’s initials welded on the side and his big anvil that he used to shoe horses, he was a blacksmith. I also have a couple of items from my grandpa, who was a mechanic and gunsmith. They’re priceless to me. I completely understand the meaning of your vise.

    @Darrin that is awesome! Have you done anything with the anvil?

    Cool story Brad. Love the desk.

    @Brad I used the smaller one when I was shoeing horses and keep the bigger one in my shop. I also have my Great Gpa’s hoof knife and his shoeing hammer. They’re both on the mantle in my living room.

    That's the perfect way to honor him, when times get tough at work, you can just look at that vice and know he is there helping you out.
