Hey Patrick….I just did the same thing! It’s 36″ long and 24″ wide. I put a 7″ eclipse vise on it. I’m really liking it so far!
It’s really nice to just turn around and sharpen up quick and not having to clear off a spot on the main bench. The sharpening plates and strop are always ready to go. My strop has a finishing nail on each corner, then I snipped the nails very short and they grab nicely to the bench top, as Paul shoes in his blogpost Traditional Oil Stone Box
Also was able to clear some the clutter of my main bench as well. Keep us posted!
