I have to tell you, I never thought in a million years I would be so excited over a workbench. My Pop, who lives in North Carolina has them in his shop (by the way…it is a whole bunch cooler than mine. Here is a shout out to you Pop!!) but I never thought about what it took to build one. Until now….
I didn’t take any pictures while I was constructing these, mainly because I was so excited to build them. This one is just a simple two shelf bench. I took how I saw other benches built and put it all together, and built one to suit me. I figured out what height was comfy for me to work at, and how much space I would need to work on.
I felt the first one came out so good…and as I needed to get some of my power tools off of a project that they had accumulated on (a table that I had been working on until I needed space to put my table saw, etc.). So I decided to build another one, but this time with three shelves.
It’s a little shorter, but it is also wider and longer. I wanted to be able to store my table saw, tile saw, drill press, stand sander, and miter saw on it. I got most of them on it! I built these in one day each. It is a fantastic project for someone starting out. I used my jig saw, drill and electric screwdriver, a square, a pencil and a tape measure. Give it a try!!
