    Comments about Sjobergs Elite 1500 Workbench :

    The first time I used the vises, I had a big smile on my face as I edge-sanded and edge-banded a 24" X 24" sheet of plywood. This is the vise I've been waiting for my whole life!

    Comments about Sjobergs Elite 1500 Workbench :

    I reviewed this bench a year ago. I was impressed then and I am still impressed. I have completed 10 projects and currently working on a chest of draws.I use all handpowered tools except for drilling holes. I hand plane all my stock including hard maple and red oak. The bench does not move. Heavy strokes with a draw knife will sometimes cause a minor jump in the bench but with no ill effects. A longer bench has merit but I have built two 7 ft one-piece kayak paddles and a 5 ft garden bench and was not handicapped by the length of my bench. The 2 vices are like new and do not sag. Top is still flat and in great shape. I have chopped a bunch of dovetails and mortices with no ill effect. I worried a lot prior to buying this bench. A year later I have no regrets.

    Comments about Sjobergs Elite 1500 Workbench :

    I use this bench for any number of woodworking projects and a lot of other work in my shop. Assembly was simple, although definitely a two-person job to hoist the top onto the base. The fittings, hole, and joint alignments were spot on. And - the bench itself is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. I'm glad I paid a little extra for top quality.

    Comments about Sjobergs Elite 1500 Workbench :

    Have had the Elite 1500 for just a few days but so far I am really impressed with it. Solid and well built to say the least. No more wasted time jury rigging a holding system in order to work on a piece. Ordered the bench on a Friday and it was at my house on Wednesday: WV to western CO in 6 days!
