    That table would cost 300.00 to make today*



  5. Jess Christie on May 17, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Would have been a great video minus the super loud terrible music!



  6. ECO Base Tech on May 17, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Also what kind of square is that you are using?



  7. Michael Trampleasure on May 17, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Music Sucks..



  8. LeAnn Olson on May 17, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    I think I can make that!



  9. Daniel Mann on May 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Had to leave the video because of the music so left a downvote



  10. Chatterbox & Frisco on May 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    What music? All I see is a guy making a work bench and all I hear is the sound of tools running



  11. The Maker 421 on May 17, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Needed something to fit my budget and the amount of lumber I already have for a miter saw station and this is perfect.



  12. Mark Chapman on May 17, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Wow, changed days from when this was made a few years ago. Just placed (only) the wood in my cart on HomeDepot, quoting me $212.21, $70 more than to buy a same size wood/metal Husky one (much as I’d like to make my own).



  13. Anna Davis on May 17, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Just what I was looking for! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ



  14. The Hound on May 17, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    5:28 as the board comes of the table saw and hits the edge of the plywood…perrrfect !



  15. myrna smith on May 17, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Hi Matt, I just saw your work bench video and loved it! Would it be to much to ask for wood type and measurements plz?
    Thank you



  16. Fish2mucH on May 17, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    50$ 5 years ago 405$ today ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคฎ



  17. Randy Brown on May 17, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    And not anymore a sheet of plywood by itself is $65 now



  18. SuperBikerboy101 on May 17, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Why would you predrill those holes lmfao



  19. Randy Hathaway on May 17, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Turn your music down or speak louder



  20. Bonney Streich on May 17, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Hard to understand you with the music so loud



  21. Sol Invictus on May 17, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    music is too loud and annoying.



  22. Shruti Bagde on May 17, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Amazing job!! Hey, Am from Family Handyman and we are very interested in your video and want to share it on our brands. Please share your email address or any social media handle where we can share the information with you. Thank you.



  23. Merlyn's Cave on May 17, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    The only thing I want to know is, and yes I realize that this is a entry level bench, how is it holding up after 5 years… I am poretty sure I know trhe answer but I am hopeful that you will give and honest assessment For all of those new to wood crafting. ( I personally already know how this type of constructed "Bench" has or rather hasn’t help up)



  24. Chuck Cribbs on May 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Perfect!



  25. ThisIsSparta on May 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Me and my boy watched this!! Haha. Good build man. Thanks for the video.



  26. nismo20032 on May 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Itโ€™s not under $50 anymore lol



  27. Carlos De La Cruz T on May 17, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Nice, thanks! What wood are the legs?



  28. Ronnie McCurry on May 17, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Too much damn music. I wanted to watch this video.



  29. GoofyGoober5567 on May 17, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Thanks for this Iโ€™ve been looking for a simple beginner workbench build. Iโ€™ll probably add some supports on the bottom frame and screw another Piece of plywood cause I could use some extra storage space underneath and Iโ€™ll probably add some casters too. But great build and good idea making it level with the table saw Iโ€™ll probably do the same



  30. Chevy Chooch on May 17, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Can tell this video is old. The sheet would cost more than 50$ rn



  31. SCOARTGLASS on May 17, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Thanks Matt! I am a creator as well and needed to build 2 simple workbenches for my glass panel projects and this was simple and cheap to make with the tools I had. Although this video is from 2017 it is still adding value.



  32. T SMITH on May 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Fkn gay music



  33. Wlademir Mendes on May 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Too loud music



  34. John Godwin on May 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Those 2017 timber prices



  35. Sal Madonna on May 17, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Great video! I am just confused as to how much 2×4’s to buy. The material list indicates 8 of them but the cut list shows 12 cuts.



  36. John-Paul Marrazzo on May 17, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    The table works great! Thanks. Here’s how I got away with using six 2x4s:

    Cut list (added last entry to complete the list):
    – plywood rip to 2’9" x 5′
    – 4 2×4 @ 34"
    – 2 2×4 @ 2’9"
    – 2 2×4 @ 57"
    – 2 2×4 @ 27"
    – 2 2×4 @ 54"

    – 2 2×4 @ 30" to support the top from the inside.

    Cutting Procedure:
    I got away with six 2x4s, cutting the 34" segments from the same piece, then using the middle segment to cut another inch off and make the 27" cut. Repeat with another 2×4 to end up with 4 2×4 @34" and 2 2×4 @ 27". Cut the 2’9" and 57" from same board, discard middle, then repeat to end up with 2 2×4 @ 57" and 2 2×4 @ 2’9". Cut your 54" and 30" from the same 2×4, discard the middle, then repeat to get 2 2×4 @ 54" and 2 2×4 @ 30". Install the 30" segments 20 inches from either side. Hope others find this helpful! Great video!

    Wait this isnโ€™t animal crossing ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



  38. Jaime U on May 17, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Seeing how cheap lumber was back then just makes me go insane. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ค



  39. daimyo2k on May 17, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    LMAO!!! This is first time I’ve seen this video, and this is EXACTLY how I built my 2 workbenches. Even down to the countersink issue =D

    I’ll tell you what, anyone watching Matts video, this is the way to go!! You will get a workbench that is super sturdy, very stable and even more so if you use 3/4" for the top.

    Great vid Matt!



  40. LPJenks on May 17, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Cost me right at $100 which is fine with today’s prices.



  41. Tina Giorgione on May 17, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Thank you for the demonstration I wish the music was not on It would make it easier to hear when you’re talking



  42. Anthony Chase on May 17, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    How many screws and what pattern do you screw the screws into the legs to the top frame ? 2 or 3 screws ?



  43. joemc111 on May 17, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Why do you thing the music is ok? If you happen to be saying something important while the music hits a high note I, a 71 year old with partial hearing loss, donโ€™t hear what you said.



  44. Micheal Kliebert on May 17, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Wish it was this cheap now !



  45. jarry Dee on May 17, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Price went up to 300 thanks to our idiot running things… don’t give me that covid crap either



  46. saved by grace on May 17, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Ok exactly why was the music necessary?



  47. Shaun Brady on May 17, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    This must not be in California a sheet of plywood is more then 50 bucks



  48. Ronnie McCurry on May 17, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Plus I hate that type of music



  49. Lois Kong on May 17, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    The simplest, I can follow along easilyโ€ฆthank uuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!
