I’ve decided that I’m going to build the Holtzapffel Workbench based on Christopher Schwarz’s article in Woodworking Magazine. You can see a picture of the workbench from the magazine cover.
Also, here is a video of Chris actually demonstrating the workbench. Too see the video, you have to select the Workshop category and then select Holtzapffel Workbench.
I picked this bench because I want to get better with hand-tools and I need the sophisticated clamping capability of a good bench. It will also help me with clamping for power tools.
I have ordered all the necessary hardware, but I still have to buy the wood. I plan on using either White Oak or Ash.
This is going to be a real adventure because I have never made anything this heavy and substantial.
