How to Build a Workbench: Super Simple $50 Shop Bench

I have a friend who is in need of a simple workbench.  A simple bench with a classic pegboard back is all that he requires.  You could just go over to Sam’s Club and pick up a bench for about $120.  This would be just fine, but if you are going to be building things on your bench, you might as well build the bench first.

The following is a simple workbench that you can build for less than $50.

    This crap dude, where’s the How-To?

    1. Dizzy, The link is right below the image.

      Here is the direct link

      Good luck and sorry about the trouble. (I made the link a little larger now).

    Agree with Dizzy. Link takes me to a plan I have to buy. You should just take this page down…

    1. Josephus (& Dizzy),

      The plan was available for free when I linked to it. So sorry. I hate the bait and switch. The beauty of the web is that saves copies of pages from the past.

      We are in luck. They have a copy of the bench plan page when it was free. It is slow loading, but you can get to the free plan from there. Best of luck. Sorry for the trouble/delay.

      You might have to browse around the listing for the page to find everything you are looking for, but I hope this helps! I really enjoyed this project and my father-in-law loves his sturdy bench.
