Worktable, Multi-Purpose (PDF)

But do not let its small size and portability fool you. This table is designed from the ground up to provide a solid, stable platform for working on hobbies and crafts. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Workstand, Mobile

This simple workstand is both stable and mobile. It provides a great surface for cutting, routing, sanding, assembly etc. You can roll it around your workspace by simply tipping one end a few degrees to engage the wheels. In the resting position, the wheels are disengaged and this is the key to its stability. There are no obstructions on the underside of the worktop which allows for efficient clamping. These mobile workstands work very well in pairs, so after you finish your first one, you may want to build another!

A sliding compound miter saw is a valuable addition to any shop. But like any tool, it can always be upgraded to give you better results and more convenient use. Building the workstation you see here will do just that. The workstation provides a sturdy base for your saw, as well as extended support for long workpieces. It can be incorporated into your shop as a permanent fixture, but at the same time it is designed to be easily moved when necessary.

Worktable for the Workshop

The only reason that I can afford building this worktable at this time is that virtually all of it is being built out of scrounged materials.

Work Table

This is a huge worktable that you can make in a few hours. We made the frame (shown on the right) out of 2 inches x 3 inches (35 x 65mm) spruce. It is a very straightforward layout that was fastened solely with self-tapping wood screws. If some increased rigidity is required, the layout of the frame allows for a long angled gusset to span between the undershelf and the parts of the frame just below the tabletop. As you can see from the image on the right, we omitted these stiffeners.

Workshop Stand, Planer and Miter Saw

This project was inspired from an article I saw in one of my woodworking books. Unfortunately I could not find the book again so I made my own plans. If you have a small shop like mine then every square inch of space needs to be optimized. This miter saw/planner stand helps serve that purpose. It will get my planer off of the bench and not take up much more area than my miter saw currently uses. It also gives me a couple of really nice drawers to store things.

Work Station, Dual Tool (PDF)

Making use of a miter saw or planer is often a compromise. For a long time I simply set one or the other on the top of my workbench, setting up makeshift supports when I needed to work with long stock. But this dual tool station allows me to make better use of both tools without tying up my bench. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Table, Adjustable-Height Assembly (PDF)

Ever wish you could raise (or lower) the top of your workbench just a few inches to make it a little bit easier to work on a project? Or use the bench as an outfeed support by rolling it around the shop so it is right next to one of your stationary tools? That is where the idea came from for this adjustable-height assembly table.

Workbench, Anthony Seos

In learning traditional (or old tool) woodworking, the workbench is a very basic but necessary tool. It serves not only to support the work but also acts as a clamping system as well. The following areas are about the bench that I built, which is based loosely on several 1700s vintage benches that I have seen.
