Topic tags/keywords: tool work bench

For you workbench lovers. Christopher Schwarz has a video tour of his Holtzapffel Workbench posted in his blog. He discusses some of his design physolophy and the features of his bench. I belive someone was interested in a tail vice a while back and he describes one that would be easy to incorporate. The video is about 5 minutes long. The full plans for this bench will be in the next issue of woodworking magazine, which I belive will not be available on news stands this time. You have to order it from thier web site.

You can find the link in his blog

http://www.woodworking-magazine.com/blog/Take+A+Video+Tour+Of+The+Holtzapffel+Workbench.aspx

Once you get to the video page click on the link on the left and a couple of video titles will be displayed including one for the bench.

Enjoy.

He also has a workbench book coming out this fall. It is on my must read list.

Thanks for the info. You can also order a dvd of all of the first 7 issues on one DVD. I paid 12.95 and no shipping.

Wayne -

Thanks for the info! I am starting to investigate bench options. Why is this such a difficult decision?!

Lots of options. I’m holding out for his book to come out this fall. And then I will decide if I want to add another bench. I’m going to have to give my Mother in law her bench. I was getting used to having two benches in the shop.

Wayne -

I might do the same – sounds like a good idea. Perhaps I will build my assembly bench first then look into a more traditional bench after reading his book. You always have sound advice!

Thanks for posting the link. I like to co-plane (is that what it is called) aspect of the bench where you can have that extra clamping to the legs. Great idea.
