The Lie Nielsen workbench is a classic traditional rock maple cabinetmaker’s work bench. Our bench is made under licence from Lie Nielsen USA and meets their specifications and exacting standards. We use only Lie Nielsen hardware on this bench. The Lie Nielsen bench is ideal for the woodworking enthusiast who has a bit of room in their workshop and a passion for hand tools. The Chain Vice is particularly good for cabinet work, while the Tail Vice is heavy duty and robust. This bench is a great all-rounder, ideal for the generalist.
North American work benches are usually sold with round holes pre-drilled for holdfasts and/or bench dogs. We have found that our Australian customers prefer to drill their own holes for holdfasts and other such fittings (no two woodworkers ever seem to agree on the number, diameter or location of holes!). Just as it is easy to add salt, but hard to take it away; who wants an unnecessary hole in a workbench? Unless specifically requested, our benches do not feature pre-drilled dog holes.
When ordering a work bench, please consult with Evan (firstname.lastname@example.org) about the perfect height for your workbench. Please also specify if you want a right or a left handed configuration.
When ordering a work bench, please allow up to 10 weeks for delivery; we typically build these benches to order. Be aware that shipping workbenches can be an expensive business so brace yourself for the quote. There is no cheap and easy way to ship a 180kg work bench!
