1. All-Purpose Workbench
This plan can help you build a basic workbench silhouette suitable for any using purpose. Consequently, the assembly is as easy as pie so that everyone can follow.
One prominent advantage of this plan is the author measured the size and dimensions of each material carefully. He/she also mentioned the actual plywood thicknesses for your better preparation.
The materials run about $120 – not so expensive but still pricier than other workbench plans in this article. But at the end of the day, you’ll get what you pay for.
2. DIY 2×5 Workbench
If you find the all-purpose workbench materials a bit complicated, this plan is for you. The shopping list is simple with one sheet of plywood (used for both shelves) and other common materials.
Besides, the author included her own diagrams and recommendations in each step. Make sure to read the general instructions before getting your work started.
3. Table Saw Workbench
This workbench idea is a design for table saws and wood storage, making your woodworking more organized.
The cost will vary depending on the materials listed by the author. But don’t worry, the average estimated price is around $70-80, which is much cheaper than that of a store-bought workbench.
The author added a lot of photos for each step, and every image contains detailed measurements. Additionally, remember to pay attention to the extra notes for the most complete result.
4. Two-frame Workbench With Casters
This workbench has a simple design for a table saw with 2 frames: top and base. The instructions have many detailed photos focusing on the legs and corners to make a more rigid structure.
What’s more, the author added rubber locking casters to the table saw bench to make it easy to transport.
Sometimes you have to work in another place, and moving a workbench is regularly plump and hassle. The casters make lifting the power tool no longer a big deal.
5. Ultimate Mobile Workbench
The advantage of this workbench is mobility. You can expand and adjust the top vertically and bolt any large power tool down on a pegboard wall.
Due to multitasking-structure, this plan is quite complicated. The process consists of 10 steps, and the author describes each step in extreme detail. Besides, it costs around $150-200.
6. 4×8 Workbench Outfeed Table
If the above plan is ideal for a small workspace, this design is for big garages.
This enormous bench fits a full sheet of plywood on it – 4 ft. wide and 8 ft. long. The cost runs from $100-150 depends on the plywood’s quality.
The plan features many descriptive pictures and a diagram showing the workbench’s whole structure with measurements for each shelf.
7. Simple Portable Workbench
This is an easy option that can be done in half an hour under a $100 budget. It only requires ½ sheet of MDF (Medium-density fibreboard), so you can make use of the second half to build another table.
Each step contains 1 colored diagram and many pictures showing the real result. The sketches also include measurements and additional notes.
Tip: you should have the MDF sheet cut at the store since it’s heavy as hell. The cut list is already included for your reference.
8. Heavy-Duty Workbench
This plan uses thick plywood to build a workbench with over 400 lbs of weight capacity.
The steps are clear and understandable, but it should be better with detailed dimensions on the photos.
According to the author, you will need less deflection on the lower shelf than the upper one. Therefore he wants to build the upper frame for both tools storage and workspace, while the lower one is only for storage.
9. Foldable Workbench With Storage
This idea is suitable for those who’ve already had pegboard or cleat shelves on the wall. The workbench also stuck to the wall and folded down when not in use
The tutorial is super detailed with color diagrams and tons of materials tips. The author also instructs how to mount the pegboard and create a French cleat shelf if you don’t have one.
10. Functional Workbench
In our perspective, this is one of the most professional DIY workbench plans that give you a beautifully handcrafted functional product. Therefore, it requires a systematic building process.
But don’t be afraid, it’s not that hard. There is a technical drawing marking the workbench’s individual parts, and the material and shopping list are also based on these symbols.
11. Simple 1-car Garage Workbench
This workbench is 2′ wide and 8′ long, which is the average for regular woodwork. It fits perfectly in a 1-car garage. The tutorial is also a piece of cake with only 5 steps.
You can store a rolling toolbox on one side and place wood or crates on the shelf on the other side.
12. Apartment Workbench
Unlike workbenches in garages, an ideal apartment workbench needs to be odorless, durable, and also creates as little noise as possible while building.
That’s why the author chose cedar lumber, thanks to its durability and availability.
Moreover, this workbench has a space-saving design, which is also a plus for apartment spaces.
13. Children Workbench
This plan is a budget-friendly alternative for a brand new store-bought workbench that your children will definitely love.
The back panel is actually a chalkboard, allowing your kids to paint anything they want.
Besides, it is simple enough for the kids to join your handcraft project. You can finish the plan in a short time with just a Kreg jig so start to roll the ball right away!
14. Workbench For Small Workshops
This workbench can easily fit in the corner of your shop and still leave plenty of working space for you. Like the children’s workbench, it can be done in a few minutes easy with a Kreg Jig, no glue required.
The design is also simple, with 1 tabletop, 1 shelf, and wheels for transportation ease. The author provides clear photos for every step so everyone can follow.
15. Rigid & Long-lasting Workbench
If you usually work with heavy-duty tools such as a V-8 engine, you will need a strong workbench that lasts for years.
This workbench is the one you’re looking for. You will have an instruction video with 3 technical drawings for easy construction.
Besides, this idea only costs $50-$100, so everyone can afford it. The only demerit is: it takes a whole day to finish. Be sure to process the plan on the weekend.
16. Free Easy Build Workbench
If you still find the above plans so complicated and pricey, this idea can satisfy you. It creates a no-shelf workbench (only a tabletop for the workspace) and uses low-cost 2×4 lumber.
With this plan, you can turn any old wooden furniture in your house into a brand new table saw for woodworking. Thanks to the simple design, the instruction is also a piece of cake.
17. Traditional Workbench
This workbench has an authentic classic design with a rough surface, bench dogs, vises, and hold-down clamps. A conventional craftsman will definitely fall in love with it.
The author includes diagrams for each step and explains them in detail. Unfortunately, all of them are hand drawings. It’s a little challenging to follow without real photos.
18. Comfortable & Cheap Workbench
This design is really user-friendly, especially for tall people, not to mention the super low price.
The workbench is over 3′ tall, so you can work in standing poses comfortably. Meanwhile, the bottom shelf is only 1′ deep, which means it won’t be in your way when sitting.
The author also measured out 1.5′ overhang on all sides of the top to utilize clamps when needed.
19. Fold-down Workbench
When folding up, this workbench provides more working space. When folding down, it turns into a compact wardrobe and creates extra parking space inside your garage.
The plan offers step-by-step instructions, including cutting, dividing drawers, or assembling the support arms.
20. Timber Workbench
If dead tree removal services are available in your area (or at least you have similar tools), follow this plan to turn a dead pine tree near your house into a tough workbench.
This table has a thorny style and is more suitable for men than women. The author also added some shore to the gap underneath the table.
21. Drop-down Workbench
This workbench stays fixed to the wall, including a drop-down table so you can tuck it against the wall when not in use.
The author divides his content into 5 individual tabs to help readers follow it effortlessly. He also adds useful tips in some steps.
22. Easy Workshop Workbench
This workbench has a standard design and features open-ends for clamping. It’s also relatively tall to accommodate the standard workshop countertop height.
The author provided a very detailed cut list, and her diagrams are also filled with measurements and extra notes.
23. 4-hour $70 Workbench
As its names indicate, this is one of the cheapest and easiest plans. The author also suggests applying this idea to build a shelving unit.
The unique part of this workbench is a backlash attached to the shelf and top frame. There will be detailed instructions for marking notches, and you only need to follow the line in the next steps.
24. Simple Sturdy Workbench
This plan features not only step-by-step explanations with pictures but also an instruction video on how to build your favorite workbench. The workbench also has wheels for easy moving.
The total expense is around $140-$175. The author listed the particular cost for each material so that you can adjust the wood costs and other supplies to accommodate your budget.
25. Budget Workbench
This is our recommendation when you’re on a tight budget. It costs under $100 and only takes a few hours to finish.
The project is also simple, with only 3 main steps. The tools and materials list are both comprehensive. A video is also included so that you can watch and build the workbench simultaneously.
26. Simple Foldable Workbench (No Storage)
Again, this is another fold-down workbench, but with no storage, it’s simpler and takes less time. On the other hand, you will need a pegboard to stick your tools on.
The author didn’t attach too many photos, but it’s enough since the process seems easy and the design is really compact. The materials required are also basic options available everywhere.
27. DIY Rolling Workbench
For those who spend the whole life building more time in whatever free space inside your apartment, this is the solution – a compact workbench with rollers.
The process might not be too easy, but the author’s writing style simplified it a lot. There will be close-up photos focusing on specific parts as well.
28. Sturdy Work Bench
This project requires simple sticks and laminated boards available all the time at Home Depot at a low price.
With the dimensions of 24W x 48L x 34H, it’s ideal for light wood jobs. And you can place all the miscellaneous items on the narrow shelf underneath.
29. Cabinet-Based Workbench
This workbench is a combination of classic style, massive storage, and vast tabletop and vises. You can comfortably handle the most difficult tasks on its surface.
There are 10 steps in total; each one comes with a description text and photo. Bonus: the drawers can slide from both sides of the workbench.
30. Scrap Workbench
We call this idea ‘scrap workbench’ to imply its simple and, somehow, boring design, not because it is made from scrap.
Some people don’t want to be afraid to repair, scratch, or dent the workbench, so they choose an ‘ugly’ look to reduce the cost and save time. If you’re one of them, give this project a try.
31. Closet Workbench
This plan got its name right from the place where it was created. The author utilized his closet with metal shelves and hangers to build a new floating shelf that works perfectly as a workbench.
If there is any similar space in your home like the balcony or old laundry room, for instance, try this out. It only takes 2-3 steps to finish.
32. Novice Level Workbench
This project will help you implement your idea from nothing to a complete product. You will get a simple design with rollers to increase portability.
The first step is to brainstorm all your knowledge and skills to make a sketch or 3D sample. Other starting stages, such as preparing supplies or sanding, are also explained carefully.
33. Workbench With Solid Frame
This plan focuses on choosing proper materials to get a professional result.
The author wrote about materials in a very detailed way, encouraging readers to use thick oriented strand boards for the top and 4×4 and 2×6 beams for the frame.
However, technical drawings don’t include too many measurements, so it can be a bit challenging for beginners. You will probably spend a whole weekend on this project.
34. Workbench For Tall Guys
This workbench measures 42H x 60L x 27.5W with 4×4 posts, which is rigid and high enough for more skillful gearhead jobs like rebuilding mechanism equipment.
The 42-inch height fits giant users better than the standard workbench height (30-39′). Besides, this project only takes you less than 3 hours and costs around $90.
35. Ultimate Garage Workbench
With only a few bucks, you will own professional instruction on how to create a premium workbench. Its sleek design, strength, and versatility will help to elevate your typical garage.
The instruction features a super detailed description text with photos and a technical drawing plan with measurements. The author also provided many tips to make the project more practical.
36. Easy Build 2×6 Workbench With Casters
This workbench has a sleek and sturdy silhouette with 2 tabletops. You can also customize the design to fit your needs.
The author divides his content into 5 particular tabs so that the article is easy to read. Click on each tab to view the steps, tools, materials, and cut list.
37. Twin Rolling Workbenches
This plan will turn your old lame working desk into 2 workbenches by utilizing the desk’s legs. You only need to add a plywood table top and shelves (if possible).
38. 2×4 Flip-top Workbench Cart
Fliptop cart is a space-saving solution allowing you to attach a tool on one side and then flip it over to hide it out of your sight.
The article will provide you with enough information about this unique design and color diagrams to help you build it right away.
39. Portable Workbench With Lots of Storage
If you want to make the best use of the workbench’s size, the solution is storing beneath and on both sides. You could find a way to hold everything in this workbench and roll it along with you.
This smart design features baffles of different sizes and no drawer. Still, it can store many small things like painting cans, brushes, screw divers, etc.
40. Modular Workbench
Here we are at the dream workbench plan that everybody thinks of. It includes just about everything you need for woodworking: a folding table, a roll-out table saw stand, a metier table, cabinets, and shelves.
The vast amount of parts and functions will take you longer and more materials to finish. Nevertheless, the complexity level is just a novice.
41. Thorough Workbench
The author has called this plan’ perfect workbench’ for a reason. The design might be lame, but the guarantee is its high quality.
The author wrote this plan thoroughly: he divided it into 35 small steps, each step has its own instruction print (download free). He also used a lot of joints and wedged mortise to ensure rigidity.
42. Mobile Workbench
The white painting, along with the drawer and shelves combination, will remind you of the furniture in Ikea stores.
This workbench can move around and create extra storage for your tools. The plan includes a 10-minute long video so you can watch and follow it step-by-step.
43. Super Workbench
This workbench features metal legs and frames, tool chests, and casters. The bowling alley lane top is finished, while the bottom shelf is rough and uneven.
Moreover, this workbench is quite heavy and bulky, so we recommend it for large workshops. No glue is required since the building method is full-nailing a tongue and groove together.
44. Low-cost Workbench
2 hours of completion and a $20 budget – what an incredible cost! The cutting and assembly instructions are also legible with close-up photos.
On the downside, you can’t expect super reliable quality or premium materials with this quick-and-cheap project. This workbench is suitable for light to medium gearhead jobs, not for hammering or standing on it.
45. Simple $50 Workbench
If you have limited time and resources, this $50 plan may be worth a try. It has adequate room for all your woodworking equipment and ample space.
Using the tools and the shopping lists to compile what you need and then follow the directions to prepare for an hour of building this simple workbench.
46. Compact Fold Away Workbench

47. Workshop Workbench With Shelf Dividers
This is a multipurpose assembly table that fits a workshop space the most. One prominent feature is the dividers, allowing you to place your drills or guns upright in each cell.
The author made this workbench based on her previous lumber one and an old shelf she found on Free Craigslist, so it’s definitely cheap. We’re sure this idea will inspire you a lot.
48. Wall-mounted Folding Workbench
This design takes up no floor space because the workbench is totally mounted onto the wall. Once your work is done, fold it back into the wall.
There is a GIF that gives you a better visualization of how it folds up and down. A full technical drawing is also included for your reference.
49. Real Woodworker’s Workbench
There are many design variations of workbench like drawers, cabinets, or table saws. But ‘real woodworker’ might prefer a proper work-holding system like this one: a combination of all work-holding mechanisms you can think of.
This plan explains how to set the base for holding every tool, cut the board, and assemble all parts. Be sure to read it from the start to the end since the method is quite complicated.
50. Free DIY Plain Workbench

51. DIY Kids Workbench

You can follow the cutting list, technical sketch, and the instruction video. The process only takes up to 4 hours and costs under $100.
53. Classic Pine Workbench
Classic style always lasts forever and never out of date. This plan is suitable for beginners since it contains only standard steps and runs about $50-100.
Although the design is super simple, the author needs to provide more close-up images of their work from our perspective.
54. Pallet Workbench
Old bed or wooden crate pallets are still useful if you know how to make use of them. Just build a frame and attach those pallets to it to make a brand new workbench.
What’s more, this workbench is ideal for tall people. If you’re one of them, you don’t have to lean your back down anymore.
55. Workbench With Hidden Shelf
If you want to store your’ secret stuff’, this kind of workbench will give you a hidden compartment built into the lower shelf that no one will ever look at.
The main steps are to build a standard workbench frame, construct the middle supports, and then add a bottom surface to make a ‘secret shelf.’
56. Roll-around Workbench (No Shelf)
This is a novice workbench that suits light and beginner’s using purposes. It has no shelf, so everything will be put on top of the table.

62. Durable and Cheap 2×4 Workbench
Another idea in the quick-and-cheap collection! This workbench has a simple look and is reliable enough for heavy-duty jobs.
The author provided his instruction in 2 ways: visual videos and step-by-step guidelines. You will have a lot of close-up images to catch up with the idea easily.
63. Easy Build Workbench
This workbench is a simple construction but renders a super durable and stylish design. The plan is also adjustable to let you customize for a modular system.
You can read the discussion section for more experience from other readers who tried to make this workbench before.
64. Collapsible Workbench
This workbench costs under $50 and can be broken down into separate parts for easy storage. Therefore, it’s a great option when you want to work outside.
The author suggested using 2×8 instead of 2×4 plywood since it’s less defective and more comfortable to work with the sheet’s corner.
65. Cubic Blueprint Workbench
This workbench has a stylish design that fits younger users more than middle-aged. You can keep all your small tools beneath the tabletop or right on the table’s surface, thanks to the drilled dog holes.
You can use a whole plywood sheet or cut the lumber to the required dimensions. This workbench is enormous, so you can reduce the size to fit in smaller spaces.
66. Cheap Workbench
You can build yourself a new workbench for only $25 and adjust the amount of materials for a larger or smaller size (the cost will change accordingly). Scrap materials around your house are also accepted.
Gather an oriented strand board, some necessary hardware, and 2×4 plywood, and then follow the instructions to get the final result!
67. Portable Workbench

It also comes with an extension that can slide in and out to create a larger working space or close down to carefully store the equipment.
68. Pony Wall Workbench
With a sleek and elegant design, this workbench can work as an accessories wardrobe or a kitchen cabinet in addition to carpentry.
You can use any leftover framing board combining with other hardware required in the shopping list. Follow the author’s pictures and videos, and you will finish your job.
69. Removable Top Workbench
This design looks like a woodshop box with 4 legs. The storage box is removable so that you can tuck it underneath your bed or sofa.
The builder provided many technical sketches for every section with detailed measurements to help readers understand her idea quickly.
70. Storage Workbench Plan
This design allows you to keep small supplies inside the drawer. There’s a shelf at the center of the tabletop. You will see a ‘lid’ that can open and close to cover the stuff inside.
With this plan, you can make use of the available wood or hinges and legs from old tables. At the end of the day, saving your time is always a good idea.
71. Beginner Workbench
This handy work area is what you need to kickstart your building journey. The project only requires a circular saw, a router, a drill, and the rest is up to you.
The building instruction is also easy with 4-5 steps. So grasp your tools and start to roll the ball now.
72. Knock-down Workbench With Dividers
To be honest, the woodworker community never runs out of space-saving ideas. This is another free plan with a detailed description, color diagrams, shopping and cut list.
There is a separate top piece attached with 2 legs, creating a working surface when open up. When folding down, it takes up only 4 square ft.
73. The Folding Workbench
You can fold this workstation up flat to the wall when not in use. There is a latch placed on the wall to hold the workbench firmly. It looks like an ordinary table when folding down.
The plan consists of a material list, a cut list, and all the measurements. One tip for building this unique bench: set the tabletop onto the wall first and attach the hinges later.
74. Workbench with Versatile Inserts
This is a usual portable workbench design but comes with the builder’s idea: you can add a versatile shop cart with inserts for tools storage. She also provided diagrams with all dimensions needed.
Remember to check for squares after each stage and drill all holes before attaching the parts together with screws.
75. Workbench and Companion Worktable
Follow this plan, and you will get a set of 2: a workbench and a worktable. They both have the same silhouette but in different sizes. You can move the table on its wheels and tuck it under the workbench.
The materials for this set can be easily found in any local store. You will take 5 steps away from these incredible power tools.
