Expandable Shop Worktable
This easy-to-build workstation quickly expands to support full sheets of plywood.
Most of the time, this versatile worktable serves as a compact workbench for all kinds of tasks. But pull-out extensions expand the table to support a full sheet of plywood when you need to break sheets down into more manageable pieces. The top is sacrificial and designed to be replaced as necessary. T-track on each extension provide clamping options.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
