DIY WORKBENCH DESIGN (Beginner Friendly, Minimal Tools Required) 🛠🧰💪
I knew I wanted to build my workbenches, and this was my needs and wants list:
I wanted to be able to use the wood that I had in storage (I had just taken down a patio cover, and I desperately needed to use that wood)
Get the most worksurface possible using the smallest footprint
It needed to be on wheels as my workshop is small
Easy DIY project with minimal tools
So I scrolled around on youtube until I found a video by Ben Tardiff titled Ultimate Modular Workbench: A Design for Everyone. And bingo, I found my workbench design. In fact, it's such a simple design, I've replicated it for my tool worktables. I highly suggest anyone looking to build a simple workbench check out this video.
One significant item to note before building: Give the storage space below some thought, and modify the design as needed. I didn't give this any thought before building. Fortunately, my dust collection system and storage containers fit perfectly within the original design specs. So I was very lucky, but please learn from my mistake.
