Folding Mini Workbench

Share it with your friends Like

Today we work on a portable workbench. I decided to build this workbench so that I could transport it with me when I go visit my girlfriend who lives in another city. That way, I could use my hand tools to work on my wood projects. This little workbench 26 inches tall, 13.5 inches wide, and 52 inches long. When folded, it is 28 inches long and is 14 inches tall. It is a perfect height for me to work on projects while sitting and also quite sturdy. I do plan on adding some dog holes to the bench to help me hold down. Also, I might incorporate some heavy duty clamps for holding work pieces.

Another good way to round corners is to use a cabinetmakers rasp. Gets the unwanted wood off the project and can smooth it down enough you wouldn't have to use much sandpaper.

Something like this could help. Just another tool for the tool box.

Should I be wearing a respirator mask too when I cut wood? I don't currently. But I'm sorta stupid. I'll wear I high quality mask when I spray paint.

I love this woodworking book “pepe amazing plan” (Google it). Some of the topics talked about in the book include wood working tactics, justification on the growth cycles of trees, and different lumber characteristics which craftsmen favor. I also provided my dad another copy.
