This is the third generation of the Durston Superior Workbench. Each generation has had improvements to fit and finish that make these benches a very attractive alternative for jewelers looking for a quality solid all woods bench.
This third generation now includes a centrally located GRS type steel bench anvil for accepting the popular GRS dovetail mounting system. GRS attachments sold separately. For a selection of GRS attachments, please see related products below. We recommend the purchase of a GRS dovetail mounting plate and a GRS bench pin to get started.
1-1/2" solid wood oversize top with heavy leg supports make this a solid work station for heavy engraving blocks or even heavy forming tasks. The ergonomic wrap around catch tray gets you closer to your work.
The bench includes instructions on assembly and we have a brand new video (see above video link) that shows the assembly process which can be done in as little as 15 minutes.
This is truly a heavy duty workbench, crafted from solid premium eco-friendly hardwood, Havea brasilensis. The bench top is 1-1/2" thick and is surrounded by a high railing to keep things from rolling off. The right hand bank has 6 drawers for storing tools with easy pull knobs with the top 2 drawers slightly smaller than the bottom 4 drawers. The center working area has everything a premium workbench could want, a metal lined catch tray, a protective sliding wood catch tray cover that you can use to keep unwanted materials from falling into the catch tray, a single under bench pin tool drawer and a pull out soldering station installed with a vermiculite soldering board. Completing the main work area is a central bench pin, left and right side mandrel hole and 2 arm rests.
The assembled bench is 49" wide by 26" deep by 37-3/4" tall and weighs in at a very sturdy 200 lbs.
These benches are packed very well so you don't have to worry about shipping damages. The size of the carton is too large for standard ground shipping so we must ship these benches via truck freight.

The Durston Superior Large Jewelers Workbench is beautifully made and should provide years of service. It was well packaged and there was no sign of damage. All the pre-drilled holes lined up pretty well but one set of holes was absent and had to be drilled before it could be assembled.
First I want to say that the bench came carefully packed and arrived across the country in very good shape. It assembled relatively easy with only pictures for instructions. The holes lined up perfectly as the overall construction was quite precise. You must be careful to place the legs front and back the same way so you can avoid disassembling to put the rear brace on. My only complaint at this point is that the top was stated to be 2" thick. It is not 2" thick but 1 1/2 " thick.
