The Bunnings Workshop community can help with your home improvement projects.
This custom-built workbench provides a home for a 6040 CNC (computer numerical control) router, as well as a shelf for the controller and drawers for storage.
While I was on annual leave I actually got a chance to use my workshop for more than just storage, so I started to organise it.
The first project was to build a table for my 6040 CNC router that I can wheel around – it had been sitting on a fixed table.
After building the new table I added some drawers to store all the relevant bits and pieces for the CNC.
I wanted to build it a bit longer at 1200mm wide, but was limited to the lengths of 35mm x 70mm timber available, so it's 60mm shorter than on the plans I've posted below.

Here are the plans I drew up in Fusion 360 CAD software. They don't include the drawers as these were done in situ after the build.
I used CutList Optimizer for my drawer sheet cuts, which is free for up to 10 optimisations per day.
