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!
