Traditional tail vise

Submitted on the old forum by tmize

So I’m in the process of rebuilding my tail vise. The hardware I have is from LV. I built it about 1 1/2 yrs ago and it works but I rushed thru the build to excited about using the bench. So the problem was it wasn’t quite square to the dog holes. So I squared it up with the holes and is tracking well now. The plan was to reattach the wooden vise portion and be done. But since building it I found a article in fine woodworking to does a decent job on building it using a core blank inside the outer 8/4 shell. So my question is there another way to build it an still be sturdy without the normal slumping that normally happens with this type of vise. If I’m going to take the time to redo recutting these giant dovetails by hand again I want to last awhile.
