This is a very nice looking bench and will be a fine addition to your shop.

Well done. I like the simple, clean lines of the Holtzapffel design, even without the twin screw vise and used it as a basis for my bench. I see bolts into the lower stretchers, so is this a knockdown version?

Well done bench and it looks like it will take a lot to move it about. Bench crafted bench bolts I’m guessing?
Edit: Any plans for a deadman?

Great lookin’ bench … Holtzapffel ? ... yeah, say that three tines real fast.
I had a friend in Seattle that made a similar bench with the Birch top but made the frame and legs out of Doug fir (aka Red Fir). A stout bench to say the least … Your bench looks to be as stout. and useful.
With the face vise and an end vise with dog holes, what else could you ask for?

It is the knockdown version. I’m sure I will be moving. In fact, I made it with mortises and tenons for the glue-up style so that, when I want to, I could take out the bolts and glue it up. Since the legs are so thick, there was enough room for full-length tenons and still enough wood left to hold the bolts. The Benchcrafted bolts are very nice. I liked them better than the Woodcraft style.
