SJÖBERGS 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. Based upon the latest SJÖBERGS design, the Nordic Plus series gives you the size you need at a price you can afford. The bench top is constructed in hard Nordic Birch. The amazing versatility of vice location permits left or right handed use, clamping on both ends or dual clamping on the front. All of the wood in the bench is FSC certified which guarantees forestry renewal. The hard Nordic birch top is built to last for a lifetime of normal use. Supplied with four steel bench dogs with a plastic coating to protect your edge tools. There is a double row of 3/4" clamping holes working from each of the four vise locations, giving an endless opportunity to clamp your work! All three benches are 33-1/2" high, 19-5/8" wide, have a 1-1/8" top thickness at the center and a 2-3/4" thick skirt. Vises open 4-1/2". These benches are available with or without a storage cabinet.

    Comments about Sjobergs Nordic Plus 1450 Workbench :

    I'm 54 years old and have never had the pleasure to assemble anything that is this well engineered, this well manufactured, and of this level of quality. I guess I have grown accustomed to imported items that you have to rework 20% of the item for proper fit. This was made in Sweden and it shows. The fit of every single piece was flawless, if it was machined from metal it wouldn't have fit better. The instructions are fine, but mostly pictures. Take your time and view them carefully (once glued dowel joints are together they aren't coming apart). I also took advantage of Woodcrafts free integrated storage cabinet (best deal ever). From the pictures I was afraid the legs wouldn't be very strong or solid feeling. This thing feels like it was made from one piece of wood. They also include fittings in the top so the vises can both be used from either end or each end of the front. I know all this sounds over the top, but if you buy one, you will see what a great product this is.

    Good Light Use Workbench

    By  Joe in Buladean

    from Bakersville, NC

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Flat Surface
    • Functional Vises
    • Stable
    • Versatile

    Cons

    • Light Weight
    • Thin Bench Top

    Best Uses

    Comments about Sjobergs Nordic Plus 1450 Workbench :

    The 1450 went together easily although four of the screws had blank heads. The butcherblock top is flat but thin and not end-grain up, so heavy pounding is out. Table skids when using the end vise and requires a non-slip footing for even light planing. Supplied bench dogs are fragile. I'll make good use of it (with replacement dogs) for light cabinetmaking. A bargain for the price.

    Great, solid workbench

    Comments about Sjobergs Nordic Plus 1450 Workbench :

    Assembly was ridiculously easy. Well-designed and thought out. Solid construction (I bought the cabinet option, which I imagine made the whole thing that more solid.) Vices and bench dogs work great. This is not some cheap thing that looks like a workbench. It's the real deal.

    Comments about Sjobergs Nordic Plus 1450 Workbench :

    This is the smallest model worktable for the Sjobergs line but it fits my workspace room and needs. I felt a need to reinforce it with some metal bracing, wood cross-bracing and added glue-up. It will still need some external anchoring when power tools are used. However, in the garage, I can move it around and temporarily brace it to the floor or wall. The vises are conveniently located and hold the work without loosening. I'm still undecided about the fiber plastic bench dogs. The price was good and it arrived intact aside from some external gashes in the cardboard.

    Comments about Sjobergs Nordic Plus 1450 Workbench :

    Cant believe they woud take such a nice top and set it on cheap construction lumber. Cross brace split and wobbles like crazy. Bought it on sale and not to sure I got my moneys worth becuase of the stand. Would definatly build a new one if I keep it. So Im asking myself is the top itself worth [$]?

    Somewhat easy to assemble. There needs to be a description that there is defintely two leg styles and how they are to be assembled. Did not purchase the cabinets with the unit. I will use the bench for project construction and assembley.
