Re: How thick does a work bench top have to be?

William Duffield
You mean holdfasts, not bench hooks, right? My Gramercy holdfasts work fine in 1-1/4" thick white oak, 1-7/8" hard maple and 1-1/8" European beech. Note that they work less well in thicker wood (e.g., over 3", but it depends…) unless you relieve the bottom of the dog hole.
