Hard-Working Hobby Bench
This compact bench has storage galore, plus plenty of room to spread out and get to work.
Most workbenches are great for building furniture. But, they’re often too large for smaller hobby activities. Plus, they often lack storage for large and small items. The small size of this Hobby Bench allows you to put it anywhere, but it features a lot of storage options, like the open-front cabinet. The cabinet holds eight storage bins that are ideal for organizing small parts. The bench also has a few other handy features like a built-in lamp and adjustable bookends.

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.
