HOW TO – Make a Multi-purpose woodworking bench

Gsport george writes – “We recently moved into a new house (OK a year ago now..) which needs a huge amount of work doing… obviously the various bits of joinery will be a lot easier if I have a proper space to work in and a nice big bench…. Or at least that is my story and I am sticking to it….So I Cobbled together this woodworking bench… The idea is that it can treble as a big bench, big table saw or eventually a big router table….It took me about 12 hours to build.”Link.

    Your new house is a cave?

    Seriously, where is your workshop?

    Cool bench, gives me an idea, add gullwings to the front and back of my bench for more working area with larger pieces.

    I can’t seem to cut straight unless I have a fence on my table saw. Do you have one that you’re just not showing or do you have a talent for cutting straight lines without a fence?
