Versatile Add-On Bench
This pint-size bench is big on options to give you a solid grip on all kinds of workpieces — and raise them to a more comfortable level.
Sometimes you want to raise the work up to a more comfortable height. This benchtop add-on workbench is the perfect answer. It features solid construction and offers a range of options to secure workpieces. The two-piece top has a slot and wide overhangs on the sides to give plenty of places to clamp a piece flat on the worksurface. Another slot on the front of the bench creates access to clamp a part to work on its edges or ends. Two hardwood vise jaws spread out the clamping pressure. There are only a handful of parts to this bench, and the construction is straightforward. So you’ll be putting it to work in no time. Your back will thank you!

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.
