Easy to build workbenches, that you can hand a cut-list to the big-box-store and assemble at home with glue and screws and simple tools

Similar projects worth following
Open source plans for building one big and one small workbench, out of 2x standard 4x8 (1220x2440) sheets of plywood (18-19mm or 3/4" - thickness not too important) (if you follow included cutlits too a tee. Customize away of course!)

Super strong, due to the corner leg assembly, and the wide skirtings around the table top.

Checkout the Project Logs at for more examples I've built over the last couple years

Working from home? So much better on a proper bench (;
