Every shop needs a workbench, but there's not always sufficient room for a dedicated surface large enough to build furniture projects. That's the beauty of this bench: It's a sturdy workbench, a dead-flat 4'-square assembly table, and it can even serve as a tablesaw outfeed support.

Overall dimensions: 48" wide x 48" deep by 34" high (unfolded); 18" wide x 48" deep x 55" high (folded).

Good when set up, but unstable moving

Rating:
Pros:
  • strong
  • good clamping area
Cons:
  • poor poor lateral strength
  • unstable
I built one of these a few years ago. It is very strong useful, but it has its limits. It does not have much lateral strength so if you want to plane anything on it you will need to attach it to a wall or something similar. If you have to move it up a ramp, i.e. for storage it is very unstable due to the small wheel base. Longer screws for the hinges are a must otherwise the top will pull out of the base.
