DIY Mobile Workbench with Table Saw & Router Table / Ep 1

DIY Mobile Workbench with Table Saw & Router Table / Ep 1

This is the first video in a five-part series where I’ll show you how to build a robust and versatile woodworking bench to which I’ll also attach my new bench table saw and a router table.
I’m going to install two folding tables to save space when I’m not using my bench, as well as to have more space to work when necessary. I’ll also make a sliding carriage for more accurate and comfortable crosscuts.

    which DeWalt saw is it in the video?

  4. EnszArcStudios on May 23, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    I would like to support your channel with the purchase of the plans for your Mobile Workstation, but I live in the United States. Do you know of a way that I can pay for them in US Dollars?

    Hi, I was wondering if you use a brad nailer for your glue up work or 23g pin nailer? Thanks

  6. Richard Lopez on May 23, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    This is BY FAR the coolest, most intricate piece I’ve seen for table saw workbenches!
    Absolutely love it, going to purchase the plans. The $25 is well worth it! The amount of work you put into this is mind blowing! Cheers from South Dakota.

    VERY nice set! who sels these weels? easy to level the whole set!!

  10. Darrell Hayworth on May 23, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Just purchased your plans. Baltic Birch is so expensive right now. Considering making it out of an engineered product like MDF instead. Will it hold up?

  11. nicola schincaglia on May 23, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    What kind of plywood have you use?

  12. Patrick Piche on May 23, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Est-ce possible d’avoir les dimensions de la table de travail

  13. dwayne hausler on May 23, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Ive recently purchased these designs, and have come across many, errors in the drawings. Measurements that do not make the design work. Ive wasted some wood, by not catching the inaccuracies. But, with a little bit of time, i was able to make most of it work so far. Its coming along, and look forward to using it.

  14. DOC Rod on May 23, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Those F clamps look solid. What brand are they?

  15. Francisco García Bonilla on May 23, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Hola buenos días te escribo desde Guadalajara España, en primer lugar comentarte que he descubierto hoy tus videos y he quedado muy sorprendido de forma favorable de los trabajos que realizas. Investigando un poco he visualizado una pagina en la cual explicabas los materiales que utilizas y las posibles modificaciones que se pueden relizar en los planos si utilizamos una mesa de sierra distinta a la que tu has utilizado en tu video , pues bien yo estoy en ese caso y presisamente la que tengo es la Bosch que tu pones en la foto y de la cual aconsejas modificar el sistema de guia lateral en este caso te agradeceria si pidieras de que forma realizar una nueva guia para ese tipo de mesa y poder suprimir la que trae de forma robusta y fiable gracias por tu atención tu tiempo y tu enseñanza, me uno a los que te piden los videos tambien en español. Un saludo

    Очень приятно смотреть твои видео! 👍👍👍

    Thank you so much for sharing this!

  18. Kathy Eckberg on May 23, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Where do i get the planes for the workbench and router table in english?

  19. BigBlack81 on May 23, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    I subbed to your channel after being linked in a comment from another video WITHOUT EVEN VIEWING A VIDEO. Just the channel list alone let me know you’re worth the sub. Rare comment, but I can tell your content is worth the accolade.

    I cannot WAIT to dive into this series and the other fine videos on this site.

  20. konturgestaltung on May 23, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    insanely good

  21. Jean-Gab Labrie on May 23, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    jeez man!!! That’s quite the impressive workbench. I’m 100% going to make it. Only way you could’ve made it better would’ve been to use imperial 😉 (I know, metric IS superior to imperial, I just live in a country that uses imperial for construction)

  22. Silvi Waldecker on May 23, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    may i ask you how much you spent only for the wood??? only for the plywood 18 mm I would spend about euro 360,00. 😱

  23. Eric G. on May 23, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Given that, for whatever reason, episode 8 of this build was the first video shown in my recommendations, I had no problem skipping ahead briefly to that video to confirm that he did in fact install all six wheels. That’s comforting, because I can tell at a glance just from the sheer amount of weight and stress that this table is going to go through that it’s necessary.

    This guy doesn’t seem like the kind of person to cut corners. Trying to save a few bucks on two other wheels for a several thousand-dollar table is tantamount to buying a $1000 smartphone and not spending $50 – $100 on a shockproof case.

    Now that I have confirmed that he absolutely knows what he’s doing, I can enjoy the rest of the series.

  24. Dmax Smith on May 23, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Approximately how many 4×8 sheets of plywood does this project require.

  25. Marcio Lima on May 23, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Excellent work, possibility to donate the project to a Brazilian follower?😊

  26. Kenneth Becker on May 23, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    how do I buy the plans in US dollars?? look cook

  27. winningryan on May 23, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Hi mate. Thanks for video and will buy the plan when the time comes. By far the best instruction video of this kind on youtube.
    A question please. Does it need to clamp the glueed pieces after nailing together when making legs and frame?

  28. Helmut Mehlhart on May 23, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Hi John, you are talking of plywood and hard plywood in your plans. What is the difference ? I am German. Is there also a complete list of the parts / tools in the plans ?

    I like this project, first I have to order the Saw. Is it a Dewalt 7492 ?

  29. Christopher Kent on May 23, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Love the glue up over a fancy rug….;)

    Hi, What weight does the finished workbench?

  33. Pour les conneries on May 23, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    God level !

  34. Robson Marinho on May 23, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    top of the galaxies, unparalleled, incredible, spectacular, the best project I’ve ever seen in my life!! I’m Brazilian my brother, your intelligence has me hallucinating, really amazing project!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  35. Parosh Abdulla on May 23, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    The video and the plans are amazing. I wonder whether I can replace the plywood with something else, e.g., MDF or solid wood.

  36. Jose Nacionales on May 23, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Can somebody please tell me how many 18mm, 15mm, and 9mm plywoods were used for this whole project?

  37. Trgopromet Ja on May 23, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Can you tell me the dimmensions of this table?

  38. Steve Foister on May 23, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    The plans I bought for the Combination Workbench had a Layout Piece list that begins with Piece 1 thru Piece 30. It then omits Pieces 31 thru 33 before continuing. I had figured those piece #’s were omitted from the list for a reason.
    Could/would someone explain those omissions to me since I have just recently come across another/different Piece List that includes Pieces 32 thru 33…with Piece 31 still omitted. Also, the newest List ends with seven more Pieces: Pieces S1 thru S3 and Pieces F1 thru F4.
    The pathway to the new/newer file is: Mobile Workbench Plans File / Mobile Workbench / Cutting List-Fasteners / Maxcut / Workbench + Router Fence + Sled / Workbench + Router Fence + Sled pdf.
    Do I need to be concerned with this new list or is everything from my purchased download file correct and complete enough to build the bench?
    That is a great looking functional and genius workbench and I’ll build it without answers to my questions.

  39. Ben Jenkins on May 23, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Awesome project. I’d love to build something like this but I need a longer design (vs. this wide layout). How did you model the table saw? Did you build that in Fusion or get it from another source?

  40. Ray De Jesus on May 23, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    In one word, Excellent! I am interested in purchasing the plans. Please forgive my ignorance, but the currency on your website is set to euros, I’m in the US (Puerto Rico) and have never ordered anything from EU. Will it allow me to change the currency or does it adjust based on my location? Looking forward to hearing from you. Be well and Happy New Year.

  41. Pawel Olender on May 23, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    What nails do you use?

  42. Ηλίας Κων. on May 23, 2022 at 8:51 pm


  43. Pierre Soldet on May 23, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Congratulations to your table saw. Very good job. What’s the type of the saw (7485 or 7492)? Thanks

  44. ToolOptics on May 23, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Amazing design, it’s definitely on my to-do list.

  45. rev on May 23, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    I love this design, though it’s a little bit too wide for my space. Do you think it would be possible to simply omit the router table section, or would that compromise the structure?

  46. salur030 on May 23, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Hey u bought your plan for this project and the Modulare workbench. I also have a Dewalt 7492 but I just want a fix table on the left and the right. No. Ovine parts and no router. Can I just build the router side on both sides and leave the router hole away. Would that work? Kind regards.

  47. Benjamin Schlauch on May 23, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Can I get the plans in customary units of measurements?

  48. Kevin LaFond on May 23, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    how thick is the plywood? On the plans it looks like 1"?

  49. John Bush on May 23, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Tried to buy these plans but had problems when I got to checkout. Any suggestions on buying in US?

  50. winningryan on May 23, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    What is the easiest way to cut the pieces for frame? circular saw with guide or table saw?
