Any experienced woodworker can attest to the fact that a good workbench is one of the keys to success for any project. More than a simple work surface, a well-made woodworking bench incorporates precise angles and a level top that serve as gauges for other projects.

This do-it-yourself version features a heavy laminated top, a convenient storage bin underneath and a design that allows for a precision woodworking vise and bench stop. The completed bench measures about 36 inches tall by 26 inches wide by 60 inches long, and is designed to fit a vise with a 4- by 7-inch jaw.

    OK, this might be asking for a lot! 😬 Would you have any plans for an adjustable workbench (height) and portable? I have an island countertop that I have dragged around for a few years. Now that we have our forever home, I need something adjustable and something that rolls. I have two workbenches and a tablesaw that are all different heights. And it drives me a little crazy. Thanks!
