1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    My Grandmother used to have a table like that in the kitchen. That said, they had a farm and slaughtered their own animals. Woods great for working on with a de-boning knife and saw.

    They are not uncommon in the countryside.

    I suppose if you have a butcher block table you might as well get a vise.

    i don't know. i've been in a LOT of kitchens, amateur and professional, and i have never seen a vise. nor have i ever felt the need for one. i could see possibly having one for splitting shinbones for marrow. possibly. otherwise, if you need a vise, you're doing it wrong.
    and while i'm cracking on that kitchen (do like the shape of the butcherblock, though), the rubber front may look nice, but have you ever tried to wipe grease off of rubber?

    I'm with FG. A built-in vise seems like a minimally useful PITA. And a cleanup/sanitation nightmare.

    i have an image in my head of the type of person who would want a vice in their kitchen. For starters, they don't know how to cook...

    Seems just slightly less nessecary than a meat cutting bandsaw in a residential kitchen.

    No use for the vise or the rubber-coated cabinets or the white range hood or its attachment to the ceiling, but the shape of the butcher block is pretty fucking awesome.
