The project

 

I made this workbench build up as I went along, without any plans. The workbench measures 885mm high, 2285mm wide and has a depth of 870mm.

 

I used pocket holes to join the horizontal supports to the vertical posts in the frame. I mostly use the Kreg K5 Dowel Jointing System Pocket Hole Jig and find it easy to use and very durable.

I built cupboards in the workbench, but I will also build overhead cupboards and mount them to the wall for extra storage.
