Make Your Own Workbench
A Woodworker’s Guide to Building the Right Bench for the Shop
Editors of Popular Woodworking
Build a bench that suits your woodworking space, skills, and style.
A well-built and versatile workbench is the cornerstone of any woodworking shop. This is where a hefty percentage of the work takes place—where the project you’re crafting is cut, clamped, shaped, and assembled. At the end of the day, having a functional and comfortably organized workbench is an essential ingredient for long-term woodworking success – especially if the bench is custom built to fit your space and woodworking style.
Make Your Own Workbench offers twelve classic workbench designs to get you started. Selected from the pages of Popular Woodworking magazine, and featuring the woodworking talents of Alan Turner, Christopher Schwarz, Robert Lang, and more, this collection of workbenches ranging from a knockdown design to heavy weight fixtures is sure to suit the needs of any woodworker. And, once you’ve completed your bench, you can accessorize it with clamps, bench hooks, and racks to maximize its utility. With Make Your Own Workbench, you can build a workbench that will anchor your space, elevate your skills, and last a good long time.
