Still Don’t Have a Workbench? This Plan is EasyYou'll only need a circular saw and a cordless drill to make this simple but rock-solid workbench, complete with a vise.
When I got interested in woodworking, I thought it was all about the tools and started collecting them quickly. But I quickly realized it was a struggle to get anything done on sawhorses and wobbly shop tables without a woodworking workbench. And I’ve seen friends go years without a good way to hold workpieces.
