If you'd like to build a bench to top all other benches, ours was designed by master woodworker Frank Klausz. It takes a lot of wood and a lot of work to build, but the result is worth the investment: you will use it for a lifetime. Your children's children will use it, too.
The one drawback to the ubiquitous and incredibly useful ''sawhorse workbench'' is that it almost always suffers from saddleback. But these nifty brackets from Rockler are an instant cure - just slip them onto the sawhorses and add two 2x4's in any length you desire to create a strong, stable base. Or you can add a sheet of plywood as a top for a sturdy, portable assembly table or for job-site work tables. A simple tool with virtually limitless possibilities. Includes screws to secure brackets to 2 x 4s. Sized for use with 2x4 sawhorses. Steel. Patent pending.Weight: 1.73 pounds

With versatility and durability in spades, the Sjobergs Scandi Plus workbenches are perfectly suited for the demanding work of professional woodworkers and serious craftsmen. For strength, the tops are constructed with full-length laminations of knot-free European beech, without any ugly splices. With a thickness of 1-1/2'' in the center, and a skirt of 4-5/16'', the top is extremely strong. Solid beech is also used in the preassembled trestle frames. The bench has two double rows of 3/4'' dog holes working from both the front and tail vises, as well as dog holes in the trestle legs for a wide variety of clamping options. Includes four unbreakable bench dogs with side springs to ensure that they stay at the desired height. The dogs automatically adjust to non-parallel workpieces. Made in Sweden, Sjobergs Scandi Plus workbenches are built to provide a lifetime of hard use and enjoyment.
