This bench has all the classic features you've come to expect. But modern techniques make building it a snap.
A good workbench has three attributes. First, it’s sturdy enough to take a pounding, literally. Second, the top provides enough worksurface to accommodate all the tools and materials needed for the job at hand. And finally, securing a workpiece on the bench is quick, easy, and foolproof. This workbench passes the test and then some.

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.
