DIY Mobile Workbench & Compact Woodworking Station | Miter Saw, Table Saw, & Planer | Small Garage

DIY Mobile Workbench & Compact Woodworking Station | Miter Saw, Table Saw, & Planer | Small Garage

This is the first video in a series where I am attempting to build what I am calling the ultimate mobile workbench & woodworking station. I work on projects in our small two car garage that we like to use to store our cars. So I am attempting to create a workbench that functions as the all in one workbench that is compact, provides storage for all of my woodworking tools, and allows me to use these tools with minimal setup.

In this video I assemble the frame, install the casters, miter saw, table and planer. I have plenty to add to this workbench in the future plan to including more tools, storage, and dust collection.

If you have any questions or any feedback about the workbench please let me know in the comments

    Nice video, but I cringed just a bit watching you spew sawdust on your vette!😂

  2. Crazde on January 27, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    This table is so well planned out! I was very surprised those little casters would manage such a big piece of lumber, especially when you reinforced the entire structure with extra boards and made the whole structure 50% heavier. Didn’t expect those little guys to hold up like that.

  3. Bling23 on January 27, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Someone probably already commented on the fact you called a Dewalt planer the Delta Planer. If not… I am But great video and build. The Dewalt Planer and table saw combined weight would leave me to suspect when you pull out the planer it will tip the table to one side???

  4. TheDeathblowX on January 27, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I love it – cant wait for a cut list/plans.

  5. William Doyle on January 27, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    A router between the saw and miter saw would be perfect.Utilize the existing tables awesome fence as the basis for your router fence.Great video

    I hate those casters. Getting up and down is a pain in the ass. The whole point of a Table that gives you room in your garage is to be able to move it around. To have to bend down every time is to much for this broken guy. You should turn the Planer so it slides out the front and then everything would fit.

  7. Matt on January 27, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Finally got you some milwaukee tools😎

  8. Paul Ferrel on January 27, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    If there’s ever a tornado… hide in the workbench. That thing is SOLID!!

  9. Christer Pärsson on January 27, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Good video! I like the cleetus shirt

  10. Fahad AFC_80 on January 27, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Awesome, I love it.
    I guess you need to add a router table with a Lift in the middle between the table saw & the miter saw.

  11. Bruce Smith on January 27, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Nice video. In re to the exhaust on the planer, just notch out the 2×4 with a jigsaw, to make room for the hose. The next thing you could add to it would be a power strip

  12. Kyle Taylor on January 27, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    I like this design a lot, you could almost build a pair of them with different tools if you had the space and have tons of functionality. As I’m thinking about a new garage setup this is super appealing. Looking forward to the rest of the series and the plans being available.

  13. Jamil Alsahhar on January 27, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Great job man, this looks amazing.
    I have the same issues and actually have the exact same table saw and miter saw. Is it possible to share your plan? Would love to make this same build

  14. FreedomEagle 1776 on January 27, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Was waiting for a cold start on the vette in this intro 😉😂👌🏽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  15. Oscyjack on January 27, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Can you post the plans for this? Looks perfect size for my work area

  16. ratmax1231 on January 27, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Looks great if the planer is still giving you issues could make it into a flip top where your miter saw is.

  17. Brett Hollenbeck on January 27, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Very nice bench and well thought out. Similar to what I have in mind for my very small basement shop. Do you have a link to those drawer slides you used? I don’t think I’ve seen those before with that latch mechanism. Thanks!

  18. tabell2001 on January 27, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Check out the Bosch RA1181. it is cast aluminum and 27 inches wide so it fits perfectly between the rails of your saw. Also, if you put it on the left wing of the saw then your feed direction is the same as the saw and dust collection lines up a little better…and keeps that right section open for even more tools!

  19. Gregory Hines on January 27, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    I would add a router table for sure.

  20. Matt Andrews on January 27, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    A fellow McFarland fan, and you know your getting dust all in that z06

  21. Marshall Loveday on January 27, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    At least right now, you’ve got enough room underneath your bench to hinge the miter saw from the back, and drop it inside the bench when not in you. Then you plug in a bench top piece in the opening. Check around, there are some YT woodworkers who have dome this. ‘Woodshop Junkies’ comes to mind…….

  22. Falling Teepee on January 27, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    Nice. Any concern about the table saw rail staying true when attached to wood that moves while it ages?

  23. Ryan Joseph on January 27, 2022 at 10:02 pm


  24. Fredrik Carlsson on January 27, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    Looks like a really fun project. Built a greenhouse in glulam beams and 4 mill tough glass. Came out really nice as well

  25. big fish51 on January 27, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    *calmly sends sawdust towards Z06*

  26. Frankie Fletcher on January 27, 2022 at 10:05 pm

    Is there a cut list for this

  27. alohava on January 27, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Nice work! (as always). This looks portable enough that you could roll it up a ramp into a trailer and take it to a jobsite or a friends’ house to help them with a project. For example, feel free to swing by my house this weekend and build one of these for me 🙂

  28. brad swanson on January 27, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Awesome job, on the back of the planer where you were having a little bit of trouble you could trim that board that was hitting the back side of the planer.

  29. David Lloyd on January 27, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    I think the planer would work better under the miter saw. Why did you put it under the table saw?

  30. Paul Ng on January 27, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    I like design very much. I have the Dewalt 745x planer in the box and currently looking for a home for it. I would like to put it under the miter saw and rotate it 90 degree. Also if possible, a folding extension on both side of the planer. This will give a more comfortable working position. Hope you can incorporate these designs into your next update.

  31. JW on January 27, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    How do you keep your corvette nice and shiny while parked in a wood shop

  32. Matt Kerekanich on January 27, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    you fell off

  33. Jim Rowland on January 27, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Ahhh….I wish I had your creativity and your organizational skills…Instead, I will just learn from your videos! Thanks!

  34. Evergreen Garage Shop & Home on January 27, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    This is fantastic!

  35. DLS Dyer on January 27, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    If a drill press and grinder could be added, it would be the ultimate bench

  36. Rosario on January 27, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Great timing. I’m in the middle of a similar build. I have an older Craftsman table saw. I built a platform for it and did not think about hanging it from the rails. Now I’m working on leveling the table saw top and the bench. For the miter saw, it is located more in the middle of the table. The plan is to remove the miter saw and store on bottom when not in use. I’ll swap in a spacer and I’ll have the whole top as a work surface when the miter saw is stored. Table saw dust collection will be a 90 deg connected to a side panel and a shop vac. Underneath storage will also include my rarely used scroll saw. Future upgrades will be a blade storage, tool/accessory storage and possibly hooks for sled storage. I look forward to your future upgrades.

  37. patty109109 on January 27, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    I love the planer under the table saw. If you rotated it you could use the bottom of the bench as an out feed for it, but probably not necessary. One idea I do have is the far right corner behind the miter could have been extended out a bit so that a drill press could be mounted on it. That planer is on my want list.

  38. STS DIPS on January 27, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Who are you keeping the area so clean?? LOL just predrilling would’ve made a mess. Let alone with the "Vette" there looking so pretty.

  39. Curt Winkle on January 27, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    I like the idea of adding a router. Another idea I saw, one that I wish I could take credit for, is attaching miter saws, drills, etc. onto their own drawers/shelves that slide into their respective slots when used and slide into a cabinet when not being used. This idea would also free up bench top space. An idea I’ve been playing with because I have limited space in my garage is taking that four by eight table plan most people use and somehow making it so it unfolds into a sixteen foot bench. My garage is long and narrow, one vehicle wide, I’m not sure if yours is long enough for this idea or deep enough if you want to put it on the back wall. Thanks for the video, can’t wait to see the next parts. Curt

  40. Anthony Ferrari on January 27, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Sawdust all over the Vette , not cool 😡

  41. Scott M on January 27, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Echo what a lot of users wrote. I’ve been thinking about how to use the side space of garage and get as many tools as possible like yours. Love the planer addition as I haven’t found one that incorporates the planer. I initially thought about rotating for outfeed but would probably have the bottom piled up with stuff any way. One thing I’ve been contemplating is rotating the table saw so I have an out feed for the table saw including if I have a jig in the mitre slot. This is a big help though. Thank you. Great job.

  42. Chevy Beaglenox on January 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Really cool, can’t wait to see the next video

  43. C&J Toedtman on January 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Great job, this is exactly what I want to do! I know you intend to make plans available, but in the interim could you share overall dimensions? Thank you!

  44. Tim Bryan on January 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Why not cut out the parts of that back 2×4 support underneath the table saw so it’s not in the way of the planer?

  45. Scott Thompson on January 27, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Awesome Video! You have a new fan and subscriber!!!

  46. Spiess89 on January 27, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Great to finally see a work bench build that integrates the Delta 36-725T2. I just bought one of these and have had a very similar bench design in my head that I hope to begin work on soon. Mine will not include room for my miter saw but I do plan on adding dust collection, drawers, and storage for things like push sticks, saw blades, the fence, and my sled. Obviously I am sure it will end up holding more. Looking forward to seeing how your work bench comes a long!

  47. Kevin V. on January 27, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    I’ve been looking at building a workbench exactly like this. Are you going to publish plans anywhere for download or purchase? I’ve got basically the same tools.

  48. phonesibuy on January 27, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    16:35 is not a delta planner its a dewalt
