Woodworking Benches

These benches are arguably the most well known and respected on the market today. We have chosen to offer them because we believe that they are excellent, workmanlike products, giving a good range of equipment and at realistic prices.

The Beech range of benches is sold as a component system. These benches can can be fitted with storage modules, from a four drawer set to a single open cupboard. You'll be sure to find a use for the array of cupboards provided in the module. When the cupbords are fitted, then not only do you gain their storage,  but you also gain an additional shelf on top of the cabinets jDetail of vice on Sjoberg Duo bench, typical of the Sjoberg range: shown withust below the worktop allowing storage of tools regularly needed during a job without having to put them away or having them clutter up the work surface. However If you don't want storage under the bench, then simply leave it as an opened framed bench!
The benches are supplied as a flat pack ready for immediate assembly, and are excellently engineered. Each bench sports two vices (shown right) both of which have huge capacity no matter what the basic size of the bench.

A word of advice: these benches are very heavy: we would not recommend ordering for overseas shipment as the shipping cost could be prohibitive and damage could occur.  The final decision is your own, but we feel more confident restricting shipping of these hefty items to the UK.

For the dedicated craftsman, professional or amateur, the Sjoberg Elite models prove themselves worthy of the name.  With solid beech worktops 85 mm thick, these are benches designed to take real punishment!  As if that were not enough, the bench aprons are a full 110 mm thick giving greatest stregth along the bench edges where the need is greatest.  The benches can be assembled for left- or right-handed orientation with both a front vice and an end vice (optionally with two end vices).  As with the benches shown above, these fine products are also available with built-in storage featuring hinged doors and drawers with robust steel handles.
