Hello, bro,, i have just about finished my 2 tables according to your free plans,, it looks great,,, i did a few changes but i like it,, i can send you pic if you like,, let me know where to send… Peace out
I’m 5 foot seven so does that mean I just subtract 3 inches from all of the measurements
Saw your channel for the very first time. I’m74 and just bought my first compound miter saw so have a lot to learn but am sure enjoying it. Thanks. Love and prayers sent your way.😘
Do you mind me asking what type of wood you chose. I’m extremely new to wood working. Wanted to build a few work benches but I’m not sure what lumber to choose? The fact you included your list of tools also. Thank you.
Nice set of work bench tables! I like how you show different ways to perform tasks depending on what tools you have. Great for beginners.
Pocket hole this, pocket hole that…seems like i can’t watch any "woodworking" videos anymore with out somebody whipping out their Kregg pocket hole jig!
Knock it off, I dont have one of those! Lol
Seriously though, great video. Keep em coming.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your project plans.
Thank you for making videos like this. It’s super cool that you showed both ways for adding pockets screw holes.
Make more videos!!!
I really like how you also demonstrate using the budget friendly method!
nice benches! great video, will probably make these in the future, thanks!
Awesome tables and video thanks for showing us how to do it right kind sir,,
Is plywood somehow extremely cheap in the US? I can’t imagine that every single wodworking tutorial says that it is "only" X plywood needed or it’s a "cheap" build because made of plywood. Size shown would cost in Germany about 80 euro and it would be more expensive than any other type of "wooden sheet".
That was great. Clear and highly educational. Thank you for sharing your skill and experience.

Would anyone happen to know if these are "rock solid"?
Just got our new garage built. And this work bench is perfect for me, easy to follow instructions. Thank you. 🤘
Thanks for sharing. I appreciate the two options of joining these together so easily. Great tips and video!
Another small garage owner here. Thank you for the video. It’s funny because I’m 5’3" and my husband is 6’1" I wanted my table to be 36 inches tall and bought 4 inch wheels taking that into account. What I didn’t take into account was that a 4 inch wheel is actually 5 inches total and I forgot about the half inch of plywood. Oops. My table turned out to be 38 inches which makes a big difference. I will not redo it and still have to build its twin brother. So I said, "I made you a work table." to my husband. Ha ha. I’m getting used to the height though. Oh what size screws did you use to screw down the ply wood? I have 1 1/4 kreg screws and they were too small. And the 2 1/2 are too big. Looks like I need a size in between.
I really like this design. Definitely gonna build it for my "shop". Glad I found your channel
Thanks a million for the free plans and the products used, I’m in Ireland so some of the stuff is different so it goes to Amazon in the states, I just copy and paste to our local version. As I read on one of the other comments everybody else charges so thanks again for you plans, oh and I did subscribe.
This is the best and easiest plan I’ve seen! Thank you! Dumb question…is this plan a download to email or how does it work? Sorry, I’m technologically challenged…
that is nice i’m going for it….. thanks….
Oh I have been wanting to replace my fixed 8 foot workbench with something like this for a very long time. Thank you so much for the plan so I don’t have to figure it out myself!
Thanks! Great plans. Just one question. In the plans it says you added 3 inches to yours. Does that mean the plans have 3 inches added or you modified your contruction from the plans. I would like it to be standard height so just wondering if i need to subtract 3 inches from plans for that or just use plans as is
Thank you for putting the plans up for FREE! I will definately be using many of your impressive ideas!
Never put casters on a workbench. You reduce your ground contact from 400 square inches to 8 square inches greatly reducing working stability. Also, pocket hole joints are not suitable for structural applications.
seems rock solid to me
Very cool. Easily one of the best modular table ideas I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing!
Great video! Love your explanations and your procedures. I’ve got a small garage so my workbench/assembly table/tool cart (planer/miter saw/sander) will have to be modular and mobile. "Rock Solid" for sure! Just subbed to your channel. Thanks for the plans!
Outstanding presentation, great product idea for simple workbench and assembly table configurations. Thank you so much for the free plants and your excellent description during your video. Look forward to additional videos from you in the future, well done!
I loved this.. made something a little similar for our workshop but put hinges running down the sides so we could fold it back to make a square table or ways so only needed on locking latch. But thinking about it now you can separate yours to only use one at a time if you need 👍🏻👍🏻
Your work is second to none may God continue to bless you and your family. Bottom line
Thanks for these great work benches! Mine look great. With a few beginner mistakes but they look great
Great job. Only question… Was it rock solid??
Great idea for the two separate tables that can clamp together. I’m setting up a tiny workshop in 10×16 shed and these will work great for that! Thank you for posting!
wow! that work bench looks so clean and accurate. I would love to learn how to build one for me and for my dad someday. AWESOME vid
I think I just found the perfect bench for me! Thanks!
Dude, stop waving your arms around and shaking the camera……..
damn i got called out lol im 5’2 love the vid tho
You are my hero. This is perfect for my workshop in my gun reloading room. I like the look of the planed boards. Not familiar with planning and wish you would go into more detail on how you did that. I’m building this for sure!
this is exactly what i was looking for. i have about 9′ of space between my tool box and wall and was thinking about how i can put a workstation there and still save room in the rest of my garage. this is perfect. downloaded the plans and subscribed! thanks again!
While I think there’s slightly better ways of making a bench (I like to have them so they can come apart if they ever need to be moved), I like the latch idea. Never seen them before but great idea using them to secure the two together.
This channel should be called "ROCK SOLID BUILDS"
I think I will give it a shot! I am definitely no professional, but I like a challenge!
Love this. I feel like you could build a shorter one in the middle to put your miter saw onto have an infeed and outfeed table. Defnitely could use this in my small shop. Glad I ran across this. Good timeing to since I am about to reorganize my entire shop. Definintely going to subscribe to this channel.
Funny we’re all on the same page. I’m going to do the same as some others and create separate tables for a miter and my planer. I finished my tables and so happy with this as I finally have workbenches that are mobile. I wish they looked as clean as yours do. But I guess as I do more wood working projects they’ll get better. I don’t have my miter yet, so I cut everything with my circular saw and that created small 16th to 1/8 inch differences no matter how much I tried to clean up the cuts. And I used a speed square and had everything super lined up. I also noticed that for the pocket holes to use the specific kreg flat bottom screw heads. I started blowing out wood with construction deck screws. Lastly, the greatest part of mobility, is I can take my projects out the garage and work on my side yard for messier jobs. Things are killer. Thank you for sharing this👍🏼
