Build a Workbench with Available Lumber and Basic Tools

Fine Woodworking Editor Asa Christiana says that the irony of making a workbench is that you need one just to build one — usually.  

Fortunately, for those of you who are still without a workbench, Christiana has come up with an easy-to-build design that includes free PDF plans and an instructional video in which he and woodworking associate, Matt Berger, take you through the process of building the workbench’s base.

This project will not only provide a safer work environment and the potential for better woodworking results, it uses supplies found in your local lumberyard and requires only basic tools you probably already have on hand.

Check out the video and free PDF plans for this easy-to-build workbench.
