This is my left-handed workbench made from solid maple. It has a Lie-Nielsen chain-drive front vise and a Nyquist-style end vise made with a Lee Valley vise screw.

Nice work but it’s backwards. Ok Ok I’m sorry, my wife’s left handed, I’m going to pay for this. All kidding aside very nice work. My bench is almost done, still trying to decide on a side vise. Twin screw or a large face vise.

Nice looking bench. Gotta love the lefty ones. Being a lefty myself, I will be building a lefty bench one of these days too. Now I have a better idea of what it will look like.
