A Workbench - 30 Years in the Making (Project Plan)
by Garrett Hack

With its large top, solid base, and multiple ways to hold work, this bench incorporates 30 years of woodworking experience. That's because Garrett Hack has been thinking about what he'd put into a new workbench almost since he built his first one.

This version has a beefy trestle-style base constructed with mortise-and-tenon joints, a sturdy tongue-and-groove top with big breadboard ends, and lots of ways to hold work: a front vise and a tail vise used in tandem with benchdogs and a holdfast, and a sliding stop at one end.

SKILL LEVEL:
Advanced

FINISHED SIZE:
30 1/2 in. deep by 84 3/4 in. wide by 35 in. tall

PRINTED PLAN INCLUDES:

  • Companion How-to Article 
  • Detailed cutlist 
  • Extensive, full-size and scale drawings

    Extra Ever wish you could get a digital project plan that allowed you to customize the design to suit your own needs? Here they are! Digital project plans in SketchUP, the free Google drawing program.

    Are there any other advantages? For starters, you'll get your plan immediately. Your digital plan will consist of drawings in PDF format, with detailed, measured drawings and a cutlist. Full-size drawings are included for critical parts and templates. All of the drawings can be printed on a typical consumer-grade computer printer -- the larger template drawings can be taped together or you can take the file on a disc or flash drive (or email) to a local copy center for printing on Arch D size paper. The projects also have written instructions to guide you through construction process. If you want to modify one of the projects, the SketchUp version of the plan will be perfect for you.

    Available free from Google by clicking here, SketchUp allows you to manipulate the drawing and make as many changes as you like to fit your needs -- or make more substantial changes to the design. You're limited only by your creativity.

    If you need help using SketchUp, visit our blog Design.Click.Build. hosted by Tim Killen and David Richards.
