I’ve video taped and blogged about my Holtzapffel Workbench at my blog, There is nearly 2 hours of video (linked from youTube) in case anyone is interested. Its made from Ambrosia Maple and a little walnut just for kicks. Its small, only a little over 5 ft and the vise can handle about 18” between the screws.

It’s a beautiful bench! May be small but still good for most purposes.

It’s strong, heavy, solid & beautiful – the workbench that most woodworkers wanted to own.
Thanks for sharing.

Great looking work bench. My MDF and saw horses are so envious. Thanks for sharing.

Thats a great bench.
You must have had a blast building it. I’m sure using it will bring you years of pleasure.
The Walnut is a really nice touch.
Why did you decide to go with the Holtzapffel Bench?

This is a gorgeous little bench. Good job, and great choice on the no tool well. I wish I had done that.

If I had that bench in my workshop I wouldn’t use it. I’d just look at it. Beautiful.
