I have been planning on building a small workbench to supplement the very large bench I have in my workshop. My current bench is a massive 8ft long but lacks dog holes and no practical way to mount an end vise. I was planning something along the lines of 24”x60” with a front and end vise.
Then I got a flyer from woodcraft in the mail with this bench for $300 http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2005401/15505/Sjoberg-s-Nordic-Plus-1450-Workbench.aspx
I don’t think I could get the materials to build a bench that cheaply. It’s not much smaller than the one I was planning BUT the one I was planning was much more mass in the legs. So to make a long story short any users of Nordic Plus Benches? And if so what do you thing of them? If I get this bench is it durable to be used for many years or will I be using it for firewood in five?
Thanks for your thoughts
