I''ve been using a rolling computer chair that goes up and down to get the right height for dovetails.

The workbench in my single-stall garage shop does dual duty as both a workbench and an outfeed table for my tabesaw. This is a great design, even better if the drawers slide both ways to allow access from either side, so you don't have to walk around the bench to get something out of the drawer.
Edit- That would be a die for the male and a tap for the female but you can make them both.
So if it is pictured upside down I assume that it is clamped to the edge of the kitchen tabe and that only the crank handles are missing.
The handles aren't missing (Necessarily), they are removable so that they don't get in the way while you're moving it. My guess is that it's been cobbled together from parts of this and that to make what we see now. I like the slick, but I don't really need much else, I'm not collecting for collecting's sake.
But the shaking from drilling the holes can cause things to slip, so four clamps would be better. But really, the whole idea of doing it this way is that a slight angle on the holes won't matter.
I cut the dado for the rail on my radial arm saw, just by making a series of closely spaced cuts. The next step is to clamp the rails to the leg assemblies, and drill holes through both for the screws.
Drill the holes to a size so that the thread of the screws will engage both the rail and the leg. Even if you're a wizard with tools, you can't cut a straight line or plane a true edge without a solid surface to work on.
Use a circular saw, handsaw or miter saw to cut four A pieces, four B pieces (one from each 2 x 6), two C and two D pieces.
Lay the leg assembly on its side and glue and screw a cleat to the inside surface of the long apron piece C, keeping it flush with the top edge. When the glue is dry, flip your bench upright, and attach the shelf with 2" #8 screws, six on the long edges, three on the short edges.

Some woodworkers have multiple work stations for handplaning, power tools and even carving, which is great if you have the space and inclination for multiple benches. Whether you collect hand planes or seek out the latest and greatest in power tools, our expert tool addicts will keep you in the loop with news, reviews, and commentary on the latest in woodworking tools.

You can build our easy workbench in a couple of hours, with inexpensive materials and ordinary tools. If you prefer a bench that's higher or lower than 36" the height of a typical kitchen counter cut the legs (A) longer or shorter, remembering that the top adds 1¼" to the final height. First, measure 27½" in from one end of the plywood sheet, and cut along the line with a circular saw. I can guess what the wood materials costs are but can you give a ballpark as to how much the hardware costs? His fascination with motors and gears goes beyond woodworking, he's also an enthusiastic hot-rodder who likes to restore old cars, and is the author of Automotive Woodworking (Motor Books International, 2002). When using a miter gauge in my tablesaw, the guide must just pass over the top edge of the workbench for clearance. The only tools I really looked for was building up a set of Marples chisels, mostly bought with dodgy handles at markets before they became 'collectable'. Next, lay one piece B across the legs so that its ends are flush with the top and outer edges of the legs (see drawing). Attach the other cleat the same way.Now place the bench top, with its good side down, on your garage floor or other flat surface. Simple, and inexpensive.I tried using a hydraulic lift outfit and the ram or arm bent when I left weight on it, which rendered it useless.
I don’t want to filch any secretes, but an answer would help me fit it into next years budget. My old grinder(inherited) is not suitable to dress them all properly and I am considering a water stone grinder.
This piece along with the other three that join it to connect the legs and support the top, form the apron of the bench. Center the leg assembly on it, and glue and screw the leg assembly to the top, fastening through each cleat into the top with six 2" #10 screws.
The wax causes water-based glue to bead up and makes the top easier to clean.Before you move the bench into position, mark and drill for your bench vise, woodworking vise or other hardware you wish to mount.
The cigarette (or cigar) burn on the bottom of the work surface indicates that the bottom may once have been the top.


The 65" x 32" top is large enough for almost any work, yet it fits into almost any garage or workroom. Tap each bolt head with a hammer to set it, and then fasten with nuts and washers at the backs of the legs.
Now, measuring from one of the two remaining original corners (corners cut at the factory), lay out and cut the top (65" x 32"). Usually a vise goes at the left front corner of the top, but you can mount it elsewhere if it feels more comfortable to you. If you cut the top from a 1" thick sheet of 4' x 8' plywood, you'll have enough left over to make a shelf underneath, plus an optional center brace for extra stiffness.
Use a ¾" spade bit to counterbore ½" deep niches in the back side of the legs, as shown, for the nuts and washers to fit into.
Drive two 2" #10 screws through pieces B into the center brace at each end, but don't glue this connection. A good material is AC plywood, which has one "good side" (the A face, flat and blemish free) and one flawed side (the C face).A layer of hardboard over the plywood gives you a flat, smooth, splinter-free surface to work on.
This time, run the bolts through the leg and then through the stretcher, again fastening rather loosely. Finally, from the remaining plywood, measure and cut the center brace, which is optional but recommended.
Stand the assembly on its legs and drive six more of the same screws through the top and into the brace. If a mounting hole lands atop apron or leg, use a lag screw driven in from the top to secure it.With a helper, set your new bench in its final location. The apron, which connects the legs just under the tabletop, and stretchers, which connect and brace the legs lower down, are cut from standard construction lumber. The slight amount of flex in the assembly should help compensate for a floor that's not quite level. If your lumber is green, you may need to retighten the bolts after it dries out completely.Now you can stand back and admire your handwork for a moment before you dive into that backlog of home improvement projects.
