Sturdy, Affordable Workbench

Building a versatile bench that will hold up to years of use doesn't have to break the bank.

The centerpiece of most shops is the workbench. But a quality bench can be expensive to buy, and building your own can be costly and time-consuming. That's why we designed this simple, low-cost bench. The base is built from construction-grade lumber. The top is assembled from an engineered wood product called TimberStrand, available at your local lumber supplier. This is a solid workbench that won't cost an arm and a leg. And the simple construction means you can complete this project in a weekend.
