Woodsmith Knock-Down Workbench Plans

SKU SN05216 Category

Turn a single sheet of plywood and a few pieces of hardware into a portable workbench that “knocks down” for compact storage.



A bench in a box. No, it’s not a new magic act. It’s what one of the guys calls my new knock-down workbench. When you think about it, it’s a fitting description. That’s because the bench provides a solid, stable worksurface like you’d expect from a bench. (There’s even a tool tray underneath.) Then, once a job is completed, the bench can be “knocked down” and stored in a compact box that you carry like a suitcase. The best thing about this knock-down design is it makes it easy to take the bench out to the driveway or backyard, or to a friend’s house to help on a project. No matter where you’re working, setting up the bench only takes a minute.
