A 4x4 piece of pine actually mounts the vice to the underside of the bench using a bunch of wood screws. The beauty of the wooden twin screw vise is that you can really make the jaws however long you want if you have the material.
I thought about putting 24-25" between screws, which would allow wide pieces like case sides to be clamped between the screws, but my bench is only 7' long (and Joe, I believe you said yours was only going to be 6') so I did not want to take up too much real estate along the front edge. However, another upside of the wooden screw vise is that you can easily remove it just by unscrewing it from the bench so really the length can be as long as you want.
