Classic Workbench

$6.99 USD

If these workbench plans look familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen one a lot like it in your father’s or grandfather’s shop. Variations of this design have been around for decades, and for good reason: The bench is strong, practical and super easy to build. You can run to the lumberyard in the morning, grab a few boards, and by noon you’ll have a perfectly functional DIY workbench. You can easily customize it with drawers or other features now or later. If you can cut a board, we can show you how to build a workbench.

As a bonus, you’ll find a downsized version of the workbench plans. All of the construction steps are the same, but this kid’s workbench is the perfect fit for the young carpenter in your family. The height is about right for a 42- to 48-in.-tall DIYer, but you can easily increase the height just by making the legs longer.
