I completed this from the woodwhisperer design changing it enough to fit my needs. I only made it 60” long and slightly shallow as well. The changes made modifying the leg necessary on the area where the end vise wagon travels, I removed the tenon and cut in to the leg to allow the rail, this shouldn’t effect too much for my purposes. I also didn’t include a deadman, although I put the slot in for one in case I decide to add it later. The beech I used was slightly ondersized, so I added Sapele as a detail and to add thickness. I had a friend laser the front of the vise with a knot design.
