Introducing the Kreg Universal Bench.
The easy, affordable way to create your own custom workbench!
Any Space. Any Task. Any Size.
The all-new Kreg Universal Bench system reinvents the workbench by making it easy for you to create a custom heavy-duty workbench, assembly table, tool stand, or outfeed table in a size that you choose to fit your space, your projects, and your needs.
That’s because the Universal Bench isn’t just another workbench. It’s a system of rails and adjustable-height legs, both made from thick, durable steel, that are available in multiple sizes. By combining legs and rails, you can create a bench in 15 possible square or rectangular sizes—from 14"x14" up to 64"x64"—and two different heights.
YOU choose the bench height!
Sturdy 12-gauge steel legs in two sizes (29"- 35" Tall & 15¼"- 21¼" Tall) offer 6" of unlimited height adjustability, so you choose the exact bench height you want.
YOU choose the width and depth!
Steel rails in 5 lengths let you create a bench in one of 15 possible sizes to fit your space and your projects!
YOU make your bench your own!
To complete your Universal Bench, add a bench top made from the material you choose using predrilled mounting holes. Extra holes allow you to mount a shelf, storage, and other accessories to further customize your bench.

2 Sizes of Adjustable-Height Legs:

The Kreg Universal Bench will be available in January 2013.

The price function isn't live yet because the benches won't be available until January. Pricing varies based on what size you buy, but ranges from $20.99 for a set of 14" rails to $77.99 for a 64" set. Leg sets start at $59.99.
Nice look. How is rigidity? will it be on display at the #TheWoodworkingShow in Indianapolis in January?
The workbench on the left shows cabinets and drawers - is that a hint that those accessories will also be available come january?
Made in CHINA?
We won't be selling under-bench storage cabinets
Hm. Well, the picture on http://www.kregtool.com/Universal-Bench-Prodlist.html (when you click "How do I build One") shows a colored benchtop and a colored cabinet. It's true that the text only calls out the benchtop and accessories (but the pic, again, hints at more).
Some benches don't need drawers/cabinets - but the ones that do need them, that's often where the quality comes in to question (meaning, that's where I usually feel they're too flimsy).
I need one of these!
Why tempt everyone without showing the cost? This was a waste of time. Come back when you have ALL the useful information!
The workbench is probably not going to be cheap. Workbenches are professional looking.
There's some pricing information in one of my earlier replies. Rails start at $20.99 for a set of 14" rails (4 rails in a set) to $77.99 for a 64" set. Leg sets start at $59.99. You'll need 2 sets of rails, 1 set of legs. Add materials for a top and shelf--we made the tops shown from a double layer of MDF with hardwood edging--and you'll have a very sturdy, well-built bench at a very reasonable price!
By the way, one more cool feature of the rails: You can mount the upper rails right under the bench top, or drop them down lower to make space to add a set of drawers or to allow clearance for a vise.
