This workstation has it all — a space-saving, fold-down workbench, easy-access tool rack, and a wall-mounted cabinet.
A solid wood, laminated benchtop and swing-out legs form the heart of the workbench. Wall-mounted tool rack and storage cabinets keep your tools organized and within easy reach from the bench. A bolt-on cast iron vise adds clamping capability to the workbench, and a set of dog holes in the top offer even more clamping options. It's a solid, versatile tool, and with the top folded down, the workbench takes up very little space in your garage or shop. Plans for an alternate top made of three layers of plywood with a hardboard work surface are included.

The Holtzapffel Workbench
We revive a 19th-century bench that was designed just for cabinetmakers.
With solid construction and two vises, there isn't a task this classic workbench can't handle.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
