Chris, I don’t have actual plans, but here is a link to Ulmia’s site and their workbenches which are holtzapffel design. Their descriptions and “TUV” pages have detailed measurements. That should get you going.

Good Luck!

The Workbench Design Book by Chris Schwarz has a chapter on the Holtzapffel bench with drawings and dimensions. You can get the book from either Popular Woodworking or Lost Art Press.

Best of luck on tackling this project. You will never regret building your own bench and it will serve you well for the rest of your life. Welcome to Lumberjocks.
