Outdoor Concrete and Wood Workbench
This Modern Outdoor Concrete and Wood Bench is one
amazingly creative DIY project, which is simultaneously extremely simple in
terms of execution. With that in mind, both beginners, as well as the more
experienced DIY aficionados can find this design scrumptiously tempting.
Personally, I’ve always been a little conservative
when it comes to any material, which is non-wood related.
However, this DIY project has boosted my inspiration,
and I am determined to try out creating this piece of beauty for my outdoor
workspace. Concrete is not only easy to work with but it will also provide an
amazing durability and stability to this bench.
In order to turn it into a suitable workbench, I am
simply planning to adjust the height, as well as to upgrade the design of the
top by using some of the rest workbench tutorials we have listed and choosing
the one to match my taste (and skills).
22) DIY Workbench with Pallets
Working with pallets is very popular among DIY
aficionados, and this trend doesn’t seem to come to an end. Indeed, pallets are
perfectly versatile, and best of all) if you can put your hands on reclaimed
pallets, you can accomplish your plan with little to no expenses at all.
This DIY workbench with pallets tutorial explains all
the steps you need to go through in an extremely easy-to-digest way.
However, keep in mind that this particular workbench
is not the sturdiest one. It can work great for storing your tools, for
example, but we don’t find it suitable for heavy DIY projects.
The arsenal of tools you will need is a very basic
one, which can be a good plus if you happen to have only limited access to
instruments. Free plans are not provided but that’s mostly because the project
is so straightforward that you don’t actually need such.

Apart from that minor concern which we already warned

Sturdy Woodworking Bench
We love this sturdy woodworking bench tutorial because
it is simply fantastic, no matter if you are still a novice to woodworking, or you
are already among the more experienced carpenters out there.
When it comes to the dimensions of this workbench, it
wide, 66″ long, and 34″ tall.

that there are no building plans available, so make up your mind whether or not
you will feel confident to work on this project by relying solely on the

DIY Workbench Extra Storage Build
A fair warning to all: if you are not interested in
building a workbench which has TONS of free storage in the form of drawers,
then this DIY workbench extra storage build is not what you want. But on
another note, if the idea of having your workspace supremely organized while
not compromising on a stable and solid workbench, then I believe this particular
DIY workbench will keep you smiling for weeks.

which are truly nailing it, and this one makes no exception.
The more experienced carpenters among you can cope
without getting the building plan. Anyway, plans are available, although not
for free, and will cost you an extra $10.
Mobile and Modular Workbench
This mobile and
modular workbench quickly grabbed our attention for its truly magnificent
design. Personally, I was literally
impressed with the opportunity of having a workbench which can be utilized as
one single big working area or just 2 smaller parts.
But the most
brilliant trait of this workbench is none other than the spacious storage.
Thanks to that spacious storage, this particular workbench can substitute the
function of the out-feed table.
The height of this
workbench is about 36 inches, which makes up for a very comfortable time
crafting. The top is made very economical and practical as it makes use of
¾-inch cabinet-grade plywood. Afterward, 2 layers are lamented to make the top
strong and stealthy.
Ultimately, this is a
fantastic design with step-by-step guidelines which might look complex at first but turn out
to be very simple and smart as you take the time to explore them.
Workbench with Sustainer Storage
This workbench with
sustainer storage is a fantastic example of a large and extremely detailed
piece you can craft (and be forever proud of). The dimensions might not be a great fit for you if your workspace
is limited, though.
The table is 73 ½ inches wide, 42 ¾ inches deep, and 33
½ inches high. The height included the leveling feet. However, these
dimensions are adjustable, so don’t
get discouraged at the very mention of the size. All the tools and materials
you will need are clearly listed.
Full building plans
are also available, however, you can find these for an additional $9.99 in a
PDF downloadable format.
This type of
workbench can be suitable for those who want to have one single ultimate
workbench with extra storage, serving simultaneously as an outfeed table, and is not the best DIY
workbench project for the novice carpenters.

When we stumbled
across this Laminated Pine Workbench made out of 2×4’s, we didn’t even suppose

Mini Woodworking Bench
I know from
first-hand experience that having a mini woodworking bench is nothing less but
a brilliant addition to any workspace.
Thus, as soon as I
became a part of the team in charge for creating this excellent list of DIY
workbench plans, I was impatiently waiting to share with you some fantastic
ideas for a mini version of the favorite and so necessary for every carpenter
and DIY aficionado workbench.
This mini woodworking
bench can be clamped to a suitable surface, such as that of an already
available bench or table. One of the only downsides we find to this particular
DIY tiny workbench is the lack of building plans. At least all the instruments
used are clearly listed below the video tutorial.
Meanwhile, the highly
crafty and precise video actually compensates for the absence of building plans
available, as it guides you through every step of the process.
