Kit and Tools Tuesdays - Sjobergs Hobby Plus 1340 workbenches

Tuesday 15 April 2014

For more than 80 years, Sjobergs of Sweden have been manufacturing superior quality workbenches. In the firm belief that a good workbench is the foundation of successful woodworking, Sjobergs offer probably the widest range of workbenches in the world: each one is designed to meet the needs of the modern day woodworker and to take advantage of the latest manufacturing techniques. Sjobergs' benches are made from home grown Scandinavian timber and are built to last.

Designed for the serious hobby user, the Hobby Plus 1340 bench is perfect for those with limited space in the garage or workshop. It is also suitable as a second or auxiliary bench. The trestles and under-frame are solid timber and require only a minimal amount of self-assembly to become a rock solid friend. The tops are available in a tough red laminate or solid birch, providing a traditional resilient work surface. The vices and top feature dog holes, allowing larger items to be securely clamped.

The red laminate version is made to order and will take approximately three weeks. A practical storage unit is also available for this bench, for those who want to upgrade. The bench's dimensions are 1,470 x 500 x 820mm.
