I have been getting into hand tools much more this year and after reading Chris Scwarz’s “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” I have decided to build one of my own. But lacking the capability to hold panels that large to dovetail, I decided to build a Moxon style vise. I do not have the cash for the nice Benchcrafted hardware though. So I used two veneer press screws and a little from the scrap wood pile. With the hold fasts it holds rock solid to the bench. Can hold just over 1 3/4 inch thick and 27” between the screws. I will probably make one with nicer wood later, but this should work for the project. Total cost about $45.
