With six pipe clamps, some dressed framing lumber, and a great deal of ingenuity, Fine Woodworking’s shop manager John White designed and built this inexpensive workbench that’s as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife.
His article, featured in a 1999 issue of Fine Woodworking, is a top download on FineWoodworking.com and continues to draw great interest from readers who want to build one for their own shop.
In this video, White demonstrates how some of the features work on the bench, and he shows off new additions to the bench since his article was published.
White also offers a close-up look at its construction to help you get started designing and building a similar bench of your own.
