Apologies to all again for not having posted for some time - although I have added a couple of new albums of pictures -

This is my Holtzapffel style workbench to date -


I still have yet to decide how to make the vices up - but it is coming along nicely

Hi Steve

Thats one hell of a solid looking bench! A bit over the top for needlework isn't it?angel

I like the new turnings too - especially the first bowl and the gavel + block.

Great stuff.

Thanks Richard - somewhere to store all my bobbins of cotton!

Its 92mm thick ash and I have used over 160ft of the stuff!! crook

The legs are bonded pieces and mortice and tenoned into the top.

All the legs are mortice and tenoned and there are no 'knockdown' joints at all.

I also want to make a cabinet to go underneath it to store my planes etc.

Oh - and the knitting needles of course!!wink

cheers. Ian
