I just recently acquired a free workbench from my father in law who got it from someone’s house he was remodeling. The think the original owner was moving to an assisted living situation and wanted to get rid of the bench. I said I’d take it, since the price was right. When I first saw the bench, I thought it was fairly small and lightweight, but had some nice clamping capabilities (not perfect, but nice). Since I’m just getting started in woodworking and my project list is already big enough without adding a workbench to it, I figured it would get me by for a bit.

I went on-line and learned that the bench is made by Lervad, a European company that specializes in equipment for classrooms I believe.

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with a bench like this and what they thought of it?

I’m planning on adding some drawers underneath to try and add some weight. I don’t think most workbenches can be moved by a single person!

A nice bench for making and repairing chairs and smaller furniture pieces.

That style face vise is very useful for cutting tenons and dovetails.

Free is good. Looks like a nice bench.

You could beef up the legs by through bolting some heaver stock to the legs, add some cabinets underneath.

My Spanish is not so good. I used Google translator for Kova’s comment:

“WORKBENCH IS A SCANDINAVIAN MODEL BUT CAN add;-) LIGHT WEIGHT WITH SOME CASES OR YOU CAN MAKE A SHELF FOR WOODS add weight as I usually do”

I had an old 7 ft. bench in that style I acquired from a private
seller who had bought it for home decor. She had acquired
it from a restaurant out of business which had been established
by a Dutch owner with a Dutch theme. It is/was a
nice bench (I sincerely doubt the present owner has
destroyed it). I already had a bench and it was one of
those extraneous things.
