This folding workbench is a great addition to any garage or craft area with limited space. In its folded position, it only takes up 6″ deep of floor space. When set up, it’s a rock solid 32″ deep workbench ready for your next DIY project. The best part is you can build it on a Saturday for less than $100.00!
I was hired by a nice couple in College Station to help organize their garage. They asked if I could install shelving and also build a folding workbench like they’ve seen on Pinterest. I’m a carpenter who loves building unique woodworking projects, so I get really excited whenever I get a call that starts with “Hey, I found this thing on Pinterest; can you built it?”.
I drew up what they wanted in SketchUp. SketchUp is such a valuable tool for woodworkers, carpenters, and remodelers. Being able to build and modify custom cabinetry or woodworking projects digitally gives your customers a much better finished product and allows you, the contractor, to more accurately price a job.
I finished the workbench top with two coats of Minwax Polyurethane for Floors. This product is very durable and makes a great top coat for high use areas like wood counter tops, work benches, tables, and…um…floors.
This Fold Down Craft Table is great for the garage or can be jazzed up for a craft room or sewing room. The uses for this are endless at pegboard like we did and it can serve as a space saving leather working table, Potting Bench, Jewelry Making Table, etc. The uses for this are only limited by your imagination.
