How To Build A Workbench

The workbench is the mainstay of the carpenters ‘tools’.

The video below shows a workbench frame being built using only wood (2x6s), glue and screws with fairly simple joinery.

A coat of polyurethane was added afterwards for added protection.

In this case the top was not needed as it already part of a mounted lathe but for anyone making their own workbench a top could be added easily enough.

This guy has a load of tools at his disposal but as with any woodworking, it’s not about the tools you use, it’s about the construction.

Check out the video below (and then take a look at the photos underneath for another workbench idea) :
