Free workbench plans

What is the first thing any workshop needs? Tools? Right. Okay, even before tools, you will need a workbench. You could work on the ground, but that isn’t too good on your back. A workshop needs a functional and sturdy workbench.  This free workbench plan comes from the folks who know a thing or two about a quality workbench. In fact, that is their name… “Workbench Magazine”.

When I consider a workbench, I have a number of criteria that need to be met.

  • Sturdy – My bench should be built to last a couple of generations.
  • Tool Storage – Having tools and hand is a big plus.
  • True Surface – When gluing up, a true surface is a must.
  • Clamp Ready – A nice overhang to clamp to.
  • Power Source – It is always nice to get your juice right where you are working rather than having electrical cords strewn about
  • Portable – Certainly not a must, but in a small workshop, this is a huge plus.

Well, guess what?  This free workbench plan has all of the above.  On top of that, it is attractive (if you go to the trouble). And a relatively straightforward build. Take your time and build it properly.  There is nothing worse than working in a subpar environment.

    I got the PDF file. I’m curious if there is actual instructions for this plan. Step by step. Cut list. etc…

      Greg,

      Sorry. I wish that they also had full instructions, but these free plans only come with the PDF. The how-to is on the user.
