Sjobergs of Sweden has been manufacturing top quality workbenches for over 80 years. Their entire product line of workbenches was designed to meet the needs of a modern day woodworker and to take advantage of the latest manufacturing techniques. The range of features is truly amazing and cannot be matched by any other manufacturer. The Elite series of workbenches are both designed better and heavier than any alternatives on the market. Designed and built by Swedish craftsmen of European beech, the top is over 3-1/4" thick in the center with a skirt of 4-1/4". All surfaces are treated with a premium quality enriching oil. The specially developed vises provide enormous clamping power across their full 23-1/2" width. You'll be amazed by their clamping speed, accuracy, and smoothness. Suitable for right or left handed persons in less than two minutes, the vise can be removed and fitted on either side of the bench. A double row of 1" round dogs work from both vises. Benches are available with or without a storage cabinet.
