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.

    I would like to build a portable wood carvers bench. Similar to a shaving horse but with a post at one end with a vertical vise to allow clamping a carving and heavy enough to allow hitting the clamped piece with a mallet and chisel. Any suggestions? I’d really appreciate some help here.

      Great question. Sorry, we don’t have plans for a portable workbench, but if you like that one I bet you could modify the design to lighten it up, hinge the legs, and make the lower tray removable for portability.

    I’m a beginning woodworker and would like to make this bench. I have limited space so I may need to modify some of the dimensions but I do have a question about the plans. They specify the dimensions as T, W, L in the cutting schedule. Can someone tell me what T stands for?

      Oh sure, you thank STEFAN for his feedback but totally ignore me making the exact same point a month earlier. What am I, a potted plant? I see who the golden child is around here. If you need me, I’ll be in the corner looking all underwatered. (Just kidding. I love your website. Thanks for all the great info.)

    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!
