Advertising workbenches on here is not becoming a habit, it’s just pure coincidence that after making our old demonstration Artisan available for sale last week we have yet another second hand workbench up for grabs.
This workbench is not being sold directly by ourselves but as far as we’re aware is the first Maguire Workbench to be brought to the second hand market by one of our customers – quite a strange prospect really but very good to know that this workbench has survived well through one ownership and is ready for its next. This is one of our earlier benches which as you can see is based on the Roubo design and shares many similarities with our current Workhorse model.
The bench is shown here in our own original photos along with a shot of Richard stood by it at the very first European Woodworking show. I’m told that the condition today is still very close to new with nothing more than a couple of small scratches.
The construction is solid ash and the lovely wooden screw in the leg vice travelled all the way from America from Big Wood Vise as it was installed before we’d started out on our journey to make our own vices. Unlike our Workhorse model this bench came with an absence of tail vice and was the first time that we introduced the ‘flip stop’ now present down the centre of all our bench tops. Though simple the flip stop can be used to support your work quickly whilst planing the face as shown in the photo and if you combine it with bench stop as shown here or a holdfast or two then there’s very little you can’t do that a tail vice can.
The workbench has been well cared for but now unfortunately has to be rehomed due to a move of house. The sale will not be connected to ourselves but we are lending a helping hand by informing people here so if you are interested please email myself (not phone) and I can provide you with the relevant information firstname.lastname@example.org
Collection will have to be arranged by the purchaser from the benches location at postcode NR12.

I am looking for a solid woodworking bench with draws and cupboard at a reasonable price. I have a vice which was my fathers’ which I would like to continue to use (for sentimental reasons). If you have several sizes I would appreciate details and the price.
Hi John, Many thanks for your interest. We do build various sizes of workbench and the details for each can be found through the page below:
At present we don’t offer anything with drawers but if you have a specific requirement we could always discuss through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kind regards, Helen

I’ve just seen this ‘advertisement’ on the web for the second hand Maguire’s workbench. Obviously that advert was quite some time ago (a year in fact!). Has it been sold? If not, I’d be interested.

Do you still have a bench for sale? If so I would be interested in purchasing it.
