FlorinJ, Have you tried smaller diameter or thicker walled tubes? They would exert more clamping force, if you can get them over your projects. Another thought is to file a couple of small notches into the top and bottom of the clamps to add rubber bands for added pressure.
Very nice! Would it be possible to add a materials list and some suggested sources for the hardware like the vise hardware, the dogs and t track? That would help greatly as I have been struggling to find sources for these items. Might help others as well. Thanks.

I guess you mentioned this in the 'ible, but I just think it's well worth repeating for people who are new to making things using sharp objects and power tools while trying to document the process solo.
As far as photos are concerned, have you thought of taking some with the power tools off and disconnected, but holding the tool or piece as though you were performing the cut or sanding/polishing with the tool on? Just a safer way of showing the operation without risking life or limb. After all, they're photos, not videos. Who would see much difference and call you a cheater? Better a cheater with all your original parts than being called "Honest Lefty". ?
Very nice instructable. It certainly made me think of several applications for this. Might I suggest one other step in your planning and execution? Before assembling/gluing all of your parts, you might want to lay out and drill your holes for the lock in your pieces. It would make them easier to drill and line up before assembly. Make sure you take the entire drawer depth (front to back from lock) measurement into account.
