Simple D.I.Y. workbench

A simple, easy-to-build workbench with plenty of workspace and a top shelf for storage.





The project


Once the shed was finished, I needed a new workbench. After a lot of searching online, I found the basic design I was after and went from there. A few sketches later, I came up with the final design.




I used 90 x 35mm Pine for the frame and 19mm ply for the tops. It was easy to put the workbench together with a Paslode nail gun and bugle screws.








It's nearly too nice to use as a workbench.
