Workbench, Long Top (PDF)

The Plank-Top Workbench in issue No. 75 will work fine in most workshops. If you need something smaller, all you have to do is shorten up the stretchers and cleats. But if you would like a longer workbench, you will want to consider adding some additional support for the top. This alternate design option is available to download in this Online Extra.

Workbench, Cheap Sturdy (PDF)

Chris Swingley based these plans loosely on the Roubo workbench that appears in The Workbench Book by Scott Landis. It is basically a sturdy table with a thick top that uses timber frame joinery in its construction. His version is built using construction grade lumber (2 x 6, 4 x 4 pine or fir).

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.

Table, Knock Down Work

What is really nice about this worktable is that it can be assembled or taken apart in less than a minute, then stacked flat against a wall for storage. Plus, to build it, all you need is a single sheet of plywood and two small scraps.

Woodworker Workbench

One of the first tools a beginning woodworker needs is a good solid workbench with a real woodworking vise. This bench need not be a fancy affair made of expensive woods in some classic style. The first bench must be cheap, easy to make, and solid. The following design meets this need.

Cabinetmakers Workbench Animation Video

Patterned after a workbench found in wood shops at the turn of the 20th century, this traditional-style bench has it all. And it starts with the work surface. The large top provides plenty of room to work on any project. The solid-wood top also features a large face vise and shop-built tail vise. And there is plenty of storage underneath with or without the optional drawers. Classic details, like the shop-made car siding and trim molding, add to the appeal. This video highlights the construction and features of the project. This project appeared in ShopNotes Issue 102.
