Woodworking Bench: Which Benches Made It To The Top Of Our List


Woodworking Bench3Which woodworking bench made the cut? (Pun intended!) Before you go diggin’ into your pockets, make sure to read on to find out which benches your friends won’t give you hell for owning.

Weather you are setting up a new shop, or just looking to upgrade your old bench, below are the best of the best…we wouldn’t review anything we ourselves wouldn’t be caught dead with anywhere near our man cave!

The Lie-Nielson Workbench

This bad boy has been given a 5 star rating by all of us here. If you don’t have this one, you’re missing out. Period.

Here is why

:-The top is 4″ thick, 7′ long, and made of solid maple. There’s no skirt, no tool tray, just a lot of maple. (We like clamping stuff.)

-The front edge is flush to the front is true to the front of the 3″ square legs of the benchtop.

If you know anything about anything, you’d know how important this feature is when it comes to working the edges of boards.

-Did we mention the ENTIRE bench is made of beautiful, solid maple?

-The lower stretcher is flush to the front edge of the legs, as well as the benchtop–perfect.

Chances are, you spend more money yearly on electronics that wouldn’t last anywhere near as long as this baby will. Perks? It comes with over $700 worth of vices! It’s money well spent. You can even ask Chris Schwarz. He knows.

Priced at an amazing $2500, you can’t beat this deal, not with a stick and damn sure not with a hammer!
