The Ulmia Model 4 features round bench dog holes in two directions across the top. A single row of holes runs the length of the front of the bench, and a double row of holes run from the shoulder vise across the width of the bench. This configuration allows for many clamping positions on the top. The top is flat with no storage recess. This Model is available in one length only.
Ulmia workbenches are considered among the very highest quality workbenches made in the world. Extra thick Red Beech Tops, high-quality vise hardware, stout trestles, and time tested design are all hallmarks of the Ulmia workbench.
