In Detail

The sturdy under frame is made from Scandinavian pine and with the hard Nordic birch top the bench is built to last a lifetime of normal use. A double row of 19mm (3/4") dog holes run from each of the four vice locations, giving an endless opportunity to clamp your work. There are four mounting locations for the vices allowing you to configure the vices to best suit your working preference. Both vices can be mounted on the front for heavy-duty clamping or one at either end for clamping in two positions and maximum clamping distance. The Nordic bench is equally suited to right-handed people and left-handed people. 4 steel bench dogs are supplied as standard with a plastic coating that helps protect edge tools. The bench dogs are reversible for thin work pieces. Nordic benches can also be fitted with the accessory cupboard and drawer kit (0042) and the optional Holdfast (ST03), supplied as a pair, which can be located in any of the dog holes on worktop or in the holes on the front legs of the bench. Worktop area: 1340 x 500mm. Please note: Available as bench only or complete with storage module.

Note:

Sjobergs benches are kiln dried to 8% moisture content. If your workshop is not a humidity controlled environment and can exceed 75% air humidity Axminster recommends sealing the bench with 2 or 3 coats of finishing oil on the top, underside and dog holes. This treatment should be maintained from time to time.

Really nice bench

As others have noted, assembling this bench is a hassle. Double, triple and even quad check the instruction manual and you should be OK. Keep checking orientation! Shake the little provided glue container and make note of when it's actually supposed to be used. Mine clumped up and was a hassle to work with. When done assembling, resist putting your finger into one of the dog holes, it will fit and it will get stuck making you panic a bit. Not that I'd personally know anything about this of course (twist and pull).

No Drawers!

This item does not come with the storage drawers shown in the product images on this site!

The bench is perfectly sturdy and was relatively easy to put together (instructions need careful attention). However, I think that the seller could update the images that are being used to sell this product as they are misleading, particularly given that they are also selling the storage compartment as an 'additional item' for £150.

Went together well until the very last item!

Order process and delivery very good. Product pretty well packaged - no missing items. A sturdy bench with good storage space. One minor issue is that to assemble some parts, one could really do with a workbench!! All assembled using minimal pictorial instructions - kind of relies on a DIY person doing it! Everything fitted superbly until the last part - the factory inserted threaded boss in the position I required the second vice was set at a downward angle, which prevents the threaded vice jaw lead screw from passing through the jaw and engaging in the boss at all. This is with the jaw closed, so will only worsen as the jaw is opened. Blowed if I'm taking everything apart and shipping it back for a replacement - will just have to drill a larger clearance hole in the vice jaw, or possibly even slot it on its lower side. Suggest any prospective purchaser of this item checks that the lead screws engage through the vice jaws (without binding on the jaw) in all vice positions when the jaws are full extended, and that they do this before any assembly work.

Fantastic Product

I bought this bench from Axminster and although it took me three hours to assemble - I am delighted with the result. Its fab quality and wonderful to work with. One extra bit of advice - make sure you spend the extra £26 and buy the bench clamps - they are a marvel !

Well made, good value

I'm an avid DIY'er - with aspirations to improve my woodworking skills. I've coveted a proper workbench for some time - but could not justify the cost of some of the top models. Based on the price of materials and my current lack of time - I thought buying this would be a good idea. Against some of the competitors that come in at around £100 less - I did wonder whether this 'starter' Sjobergs bench would be worth the extra. I think it is. It's fairly weighty and sturdy - and is made from quality materials. I bought the extra cabinet to go with it - and that's a worthwhile addition. It's made predominantly from pine with some MDF - but the top is solid birch. Everything is cut to fit beautifully. There are some quality touches - such as the use of Torq screws to hold many of the components together. The vices are good too. I ordered a couple of standard Sjoberg holdfasts - simple and effective. Assembly was pretty simple - but it's vital to read them in detail to ensure all the very similar parts go together in the right order. Delivery from Axminster was fast and efficient - everything arrived in good order. Would I buy again? I certainly would.
