Ga- rage. I love the aussies. How much did you spend on her mate?

Mbmoney1217 says:

I've watched many YT videos about building different workbenches, but this is the design I always go to. Strong, cheap, and easy to build. I've just modified the design for my needs. The core design stays the same. Cheers!

Justin Jolley says:

Hey Uncle Knackers, I've noticed in recent videos that you've put castor wheels on. Did you have to cut down the height to accommodate them or did you just screw them on as is?

Mark W says:

I used 2×6 for my top rails. Wife rolling her eyes, again!! "Why can't you ever just do it like the video shows"!? LOL!

Wood Worker says:

Hello there. I like your video very much. It's really inspiring. I'm just new. I made myself a work bench. Yeah, I had a hard time, but I did. I'm waiting for you on my channel. You can make me happy by supporting me.

Leandro Pedras says:

After watching a few videos on making a work bench, this was the most helpful for what I needed. Cheers mate!

Callix Miller says:

OK, I’m a new to these projects, so not sure where to locate that measurements/parts list. H E L P !!

Stevetube101 says:

I made this workbench, with a few mods! You can see it in my videos…

Pete Singh says:

Good job mate like down town

D G says:

I looked up Sawtell NSW out of curiosity. Looks like a fantastic place to live. Cheers!

Thomas Gillot says:

Anyone know how much USD the materials will cost for the full build?

sabestek says:

One of the better workbench builds I've seen watched on YouTube thanks

BigAl1able says:

It's pronounced Garage NOT Garage !!!

tkay4401 says:

I've watched one workbench video after another, but this is I think is the best. I love the simplicity of it. I really like the way the way you made the legs bear the weight of the rails and table top. Simple but genius! And, the trim around the edges gives it a very nice aesthetic appearance. Brilliant!

BIlly The Kid says:

This will be my next project!! Thanks brother! Great video!!!!!

Ross Kilpatrick says:

Will build this bench thanks mate for such an entertaining video. Also fun to watch and listen.

Lloyd Duston says:

Best workbench design I have found so far. And this guy's instruction is simple and straight forward. I built this bench in just a couple hours with some 2X4 lumber I had laying around. Bought the plywood for the top at Home Depot and they cut it down to size for free right there at the store. Thanks to the gentleman who did this video………OUTSTANDING!

Such a breath of fresh air to see a video using Metric. Great vid mate, i'll be using this to build my own 5m bench this weekend :)=

Martin Babiak says:

thanks! Just finishing workbench based on this video. I am beginner in woodworking but this table is not difficult to make and it is so sturdy! I made legs from 10x10cm which I had from my old project. Since I am beginner, my 45 degrees angles are not so perfect, butstill ok. My bench is 200x100cm. Thanks a lot for this video!

Ralph Steven says:

Nice bench, for extra top frame strength i'll add glue before screwing….
