This is a large woodworker’s workbench made of solid European Red Beech with an exceptionally thick top which adds to its weight and, therefore, its great working stability. It also has a full width tail vise, a center drawer for small tools and other bits and pieces that you want to keep close at hand,and a rear Tool Well. The double row of steel bench dogs provides exceptional surface clamping capacity. A modest amount of assembly is required – 30 to 45 minutes – and you are ready to go to work.

The benches have sturdy, well made and fitted beech-veneer storage units. The storage capacity of the Pro Model 88A01.80 provides two large open cupboards and an adjacent lockable compartment. The Deluxe Pro Model is distinguished by a large lockable horizontal cabinet and 4 adjacent drawers. These are both large capacity benches that should last for generations. Length 78”, Width 24”. The two models are identical except for the storage option.

The working height is 34-1/4 inches. The top has a total of 32 bench dog holes. The two vises each have a steel acme threaded central screw plus to smooth steel support rods. Weight 260 lbs. and 286 lbs respectively.

Shipped by truck, freight prepaid, for a fixed trucking surcharge of $150 (Click Here for trucking details) for delivery to the contiguous 48 states. (This charge is a fraction of the full trucking cost.) Additional costs will apply for delivery to AK, HI and PR for special handling services. Delivery outside the USA is not available.

Poor Quality On The Details
Reviewed By:   (Detroit, Michigan) 
Overall, the bench is a solid piece of workmanship. However, there was a seemingly small but quite significant miss on the details. The pre-drilled holes for the vise brackets were remarkably off, one by as much as 1/2 inch. The other holes were also off by smaller amounts. I had to drill out the bracket holes to get the brackets on to the underside of the bench. Another small item is the quality of the lag screws supplied. I torqued the head off of two of them. I ended up with a trip to the hardware store for decent quality steel. The other significant dissatisfied is a design flaw, which is a lack of a handle on the locking cabinet door. Even unlocked, you cannot open the door without pulling on the key (or adding a handle). Noe of these times are a big deal at all, but they add up to more disappointment than one should experience with a product of this price.

Very Early Bench
Reviewed By:   (Maitland, New South Wales) 
My brother in law purchased a bench in the late 90's. I thought what a fantastic item to work with wood, solid, stable, a choice of vices, the metal one is very good, the shaving slot and storage. He never used the bench! Now I am cleaning away the years of dust and I find it has doopey vices as the vice rods are a loose fit in the bushes, the vice screws have no limit stop and the finish where it can't be seen is a bit rough. The top polishes up very well though, I hope the present benches are of better quality for the price?

Same Problems
Reviewed By:   (Briarcliff, NY) 
I had the same problems as the other reviewer. The pilot holes were too small and some were not aligned. Even with aligned pilot holes, the heads of the bolts broke off. The holes for the vise were misaligned and needed to be expanded before it would fit. The bench is very solid but I expected better quality for the price.

Great But Serious Problems
Reviewed By:   (Washougal, Washington) 
I purchased the Pro Storage bench this month and I am generally pleased with the item but had some serious problems that occurred. The bench arrived in great shape but the kit was missing 4 dowels for attaching the tressel to the legs and the instruction sheet was graffic but not very correct in the materials list. I also experienced that when attaching the vise to the underside of the bench the pilot holes were too small and two of the lag screws broke off at the head. The instruction sheet for the storage unit was not photocopied very well and I had to guess at how to put it together. Good thing that I enjoy puzzles because that was what it was!! Lastly, the bench dogs are only appropriate for using with very thick wood i.e. the dogs stick up a minimum of 1 inch above the bench top. Great way to ruin a hand plane.
