Fold Away Workbench
Workshop Plans November 28, 2011 WoodworkCity 3
If you are like me, you can never have enough workbench space. I am a stacker and my workbench space tends to get taken up when I am in the middle of my projects. This fold away workbench might be ideal for the times when I need a little extra space.
This bench is made from standard items.
Depending on your size, you will need 3 butt hinges, 3 2 x 4’s and 1 piece of MDF that is about 14″ x 48″ (You could use virtually any 3/4 material for the top).
Click on the image to view the full sized plans. There isn’t too detailed a description of the construction. This project is simple enough to build based upon the drawing. If you have a non-standard wall cavity, be sure you measure to fit and give yourself about 1/2″ clearance from your rough opening size.
Good luck building this terrific folding bench.
