24" x 84" Laminated Maple Bench Top, 98 Lbs.
Great work surface in my new workshop
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love my laminate
I used these to replace my kitchen countertops. They are HEAVY! My only complaint was that they were damaged in shipping, from the strapping used on the box. I managed to work around it, but be advised, there is no way to avoid it, according to customer service.
Always wanted benchtops like this.
Capital District, New York
Really cleans up the shop and gives incentive to keep things organized. Great work surfaces.
Not flat. At the midpoint of a straight edge across the 24 inch dimension, the benchtop bows down more than 1/8 inch. Return it and make one myself... or flatten this thing? Disappointing.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I like the way the joints are staggered and that every other laminate is a quarter-sawn solid piece.
Good for the price
All in all, it is a very nice product for the price. It wasn't packaged well enough to avoid damage during shipping though. It has plastic corner guards that protected the corners, but It had two dents about one inch in length on two sides. I used mine for a workbench in my garage, so it didn't bother me, but if I was planning to use this as a countertop in the house, I would have returned it.
a shop-made bench I am proud of
La Grange, NC (wayne county)
Though I did not catch this on sale, Woodcraft was very nice about allowing the discount after I bought it with the 30 day garantee. The slightly rounded edges on front and back helped keep the packaging box in good shape, and were not much problem for me. my glued on hardwood skirts next to the slight curve now provide a built-in pencil catch. I attached my previously bought jorgensen smaller vise for front vise, drilled 3/4 holes, bought a pair of pinnacle bench dogs, and a veritas wonder dog, which for the time being is adequate as a poor-man's tail vise. One comment I saw was about the thickness being a negative. I attached a sheet of 3/4 (minus 1/32 inch)plywood to the bottom, giving my top a thickness of 2 1/2 inches, but used 1/2 inch oak under the part where I attached the vise, since it required a max thickness of 2 1/4 inches. Be sure to make pilot holes for screws using the hardwood rule, and if no bees wax lube is available, vegetable oil works very nicely.
24x 84 and 30 x 60 Maple bench tops
St. Paul, MN
I'm finishing the first (24 x 84)bench now and can't wait to use my first non pine 2x4 bench.
I would have prefered non radiused edges but I can understand that I'm probably in the minority.
Good price for a good product
A few joints were not perfectly tight. Edge strips ran the full length. Had considered using it for kitchen counter top, but will use half to make a moving island instead. There is better looking product out there with longer interior strips and fewer dark wood sections, but at a MUCH higher price.
This would make a beautiful workbench top; I'll use the other half for a 24X42" shop table. I wish I'd had a couple of these before I built my other benches, except I'd be sad if working on a project marred the top.
Solid, flat, good value, highly recommended, especially when on sale.

Made the difference between 'striking' and 'ho-hum'.
