I finally built my mechanic’s workbench for the garage! I’m very happy with how it turned out, and it was easier to build than I thought it would be. For under $250, I can’t imagine a better workbench than this one that I made in only a few days.
Using some pre-built adjustable legs (BenchPro), a couple of 4×8 sheets of 3/4 inch plywood, a little poplar, some glue, some screws, and just a bit of bedliner, this bench came out better than I could hope for. In this video I’ll walk you through just how I put it together and what steps I took to make sure it’s as strong as I can make it.
Here’s a materials list:
2 – sheets of 3/4 inch birch plywood (4×8 sheets)
1 – sheet 1/4 inch hardboard
2 – 1/2″x3x6ft Poplar Board
2 – 1x3x8 Poplar Board
