Thread: Tiger Maple European Workbench with Lie Nielsen Hardware and Bench Dogs - SOLD

  1. #1

    Tiger Maple European Workbench with Lie Nielsen Hardware and Bench Dogs - SOLD

    Hand Built European Workbench with Lie Nielsen Hardware.
    Built by an obsessive hobbyist - I make furniture for our house and a couple of guitars - maybe two projects a year.
    We are moving to a place that won't accommodate a shop so I am moving this along sadly.

    The bench was built from Tiger Maple and is beautiful.
    Lie Nielsen Hardware - Tail Vise, and 18" Shoulder Vise.
    I made bench dogs out of Ebony (2 pairs), Fiddleback Walnut (1 pair), and Tiger Maple (1 pair) - 4 pairs altogether which Lie Nielsen sells for $50 a pair.
    The chain driven shoulder vise handle can be mounted on either side.

    The Bench is 80 1/2" Long, and 30 1/2" Deep (33" deep at the Shoulder Vise). I built in a tool tray to keep chisels, dovetail saws, etc. safe from falling on the floor.

    The bench hardware was about $550, and the Tiger Maple material was over $1,500, so over $2,000 in parts and material, and many hours to build.

    It could use a sanding and refinishing to pop, but is in nice shape as is.

    The vises work beautifully.

    Asking $1,200 or best offer.

    I live in the Philadelphia area so local pickup is obviously preferred as this bench is very heavy, but I will coordinate with your shipper if you arrange to have it shipped.

    Gorgeous!! Someone will get a great bench.
    You only need 2 tools in life. If it's supposed to move and doesn't... use WD40. If it moves and shouldn't... use duct tape.

    Sorry to hear that you can't keep it. I think it would make for a great dinning room table in your new place :-)

    Imagine sliding the mash potatoes down the table using the end vise

    Folks, this is a steal, and that Lie-Nielsen twin screw vise is the most awesome wooden chop vise ever. I have one on my bench. It does not rack. It just simply doesn’t rack.

    Yeah, I have no room for it, no money for it, and live to far away but I’m still drooling all over my screen looking at it. Would love to have this bench any day of the week. I’d probably be trying to convince my wife that we don’t need a dining table or a guest room or something. Sorry you have to sell it.

    Both vises are amazing, and the shoulder vise does not rack a millimeter
    I added leather to the face which really adds a nice feel to the clamping pressure

    Yeah if Greg is closer to me I'd honestly buy the bench to put in my living room But alas, I can't make the 500 miles drive round trip.

    Too far, and too right handed, but a beautiful bench Greg. Sorry you need to part with it.
