Description

 

 

 

After designing and building my version of an ALL-IN-ONE woodworking workstation I have been flooded with request for more detailed plans to explain how I went about assembling it.

The redrawn plans have now finally been made available for purchase here. (Better late than never)

These are the plans I designed and represent the exact dimensions I followed while building my ALL-IN-ONE bench as shown on my YouTube channel, Woodshop Junkies.

 

 

Available in METRIC and IMPERIAL units.

The bench was designed and built using the metric system. All dimensions were converted directly to imperial units and are therefore expressed in thousands of an inch.

  1. Hi I have paid for the plans and il a bit confused? I work in, inches and feet but it’s not making sense I don’t know if I’m reading it wrong

        1. I converted the imperial directly from the metric and expressed in 1000th of an inch. Reason being that I have no idea what standard sizes are in the US.

        2. Just use a conversion tool on Google or print out a table sheet with the conversions. Or just use metric. I use imperial but I’ve heard metric is much simpler plus in the US we have been taught both technically.

        3. The conversion from metric to inches in decimal format is more accurate. I use the inches in decimal in many programs as it allows the ability to create more accurate designs when converting from metric to imperial. I personally use the inches in decimal daily when working with Vectric’s VCarve Pro application.

      1. I would be happy to pay more for a Sketchup file so that I can modify a few things to fit my space and needs. Do you have plans to create a Sketchup file?

        1. Hey JR,

          I don’t draw using Sketchup and the software I use uses a different file format. I will look into import export options to see if it is possible to get the drawings compatible with Sketchup.

          1. The Drawing design not in SketchUp was my no go points. Not be able to see and adjust the design is a big issue.

          2. Hi Robert,

            The software I use for my designs is not compatible with Sketchup. I am looking into a file format that would be able to be imported into Sketchup.

          3. Thanks for the reply. I’ll buy these plans and see if I can recreate them in Sketchup. Looking forward to building this. I really appreciate your videos and the plans.

  2. Do not have a planer, but want add bench top router, drill press & a scroll saw. That can tuck out of the way to have a flat surface to use my table saw, Thank you.

  3. How did you figure out how to fold down the miter saw (i.e. where to make the pivot so it all went under the benchtop)? I want to do something similar to my workbench. My miter saw is much larger than yours; what considerations should I keep in mind?

    1. I needed to consider the depth of the saw base with relation to the bench top and also the pivot point with relation to the saw base.
      The distance between the saw base and the side panel (when folded down) needed to be enough to accommodate the height of the saw. In an ideal situation I would have simply placed the pivot all the way at the back of the folding bed. I couldn’t do this however, because the distance from the pivot to the floor would then be less than the distance from the pivot to the side of the bench. This meant that the saw would not be able to fold down all the way.
      I moved the pivot point forward a bit (toward the outer edge of the bench) but the part of the saw bed behind the pivot
      point couldn’t be more than the distance from the pivot point to the bench top. The reason for this is because when folding the bed down the part of
      the bed that is behind the pivot point would move up.

      I really hope this makes sense.

  4. Would you be able to give an idea of how much wood is required for this project to be able to know how much would I would need to buy but before I actually purchase the plans. I basically want to work out how affordable it is to build this table. Looks amazing but no point buying plans now if the wood is gonna cost too much.

    1. Hi Dave

      Because I built the bench in stages using salvaged plywood I don’t really have a set cutting list. I will look into it and see what I can do.

  5. hi, I love this table and want to buy the plans. However, not being set up yet and a novice woodworker, I really need the cutting list! When will you have this available? Thanks

  6. Hey I just bought the plans for this workbench I know someone asked you recently about a cut list I am just checking to see about how long until you think you will have it. I want to make a list of material I will need and buy everything at once.

  7. It seems as though you are making updates to the plans (cut list, sketchup or simliar plans)…I am wondering if you purchased the plans in the past will one be able to get the updated plans as you make changes?

  8. Hi Jean,

    Just checking in as I have been waiting on the cutting list and don’t see it posted, were you going to send it out in an email? Desperate to start my work bench!

    1. Hi Kristeen,

      The cutting lists have been added to this post. You will find the link at the top left of the page under the product description.

  9. Hi Jean

    I watched all your video series on the all-in-one workbench. Excellent project, I really enjoyed it, thank you for sharing this. I wanted to start planning something based on this and right away I couldn’t understand how you managed to fit everything in there. That was until I went back to video one and heard you say that it was a 1.6m x 2.5m workbench. Here in the UK it seems all our sheet material is maxed out at 1.22m x 2.44m which means I’m 14″ out on the width right away.

    Thought I’d mention it for the benefit of others. Wonder why we have this difference though?

    It’s been over a year since you built this, any regrets or tweaks you wish you’d made?

    Cheers
    James

    1. Hey James,

      There are a few things that I would do differently. I have considered a few modifications and improvements. I am planning on rebuilding a second/better version of the bench for my new shop.

      1. That’s great to hear there will be more content based on this workbench.

        One of the reason why I loved your series was that you have the same problem with space as I do. I see all too often people on YT showcasing their problem with space as they only have 75ft square workshop and I feel soooo sorry for them 😛

        Good luck with it all and I look forwarding to browsing more of your channel

  10. Hi Jean,

    I really like your design and plan to purchase a set of plans. If I may make a suggestion regarding this video. I watched all of the build videos and it was great to see how each new completed section worked at the end of its respective video. I believe your plans will sell better if this video included a ‘walk around’ and demonstration of the finished product showing how each of the sections work. Some people may not want to spend the time watching each build video unless they can see how the finished product works first.

    I am looking forward to getting started once I download your plans. We have a two car garage that we have never been able to park a car in. After being married for 43 years, I think it’s time to at least make room enough for my wife’s car. 😉

  11. Jean,

    Love the plan and after everyone I looked at, your plan was the one. I purchased them today as It was everything I was looking for an just what I’d expect a bench to be.

    Well done mate!

    Now one question for you…
    The cut list you provided is in a jpg or gif format. I was wondering if you had it in a csv format so that I could import it into http://www.cutlistoptimizer.com to simplify and figure out what my costs will be to build this bench.

    Many thanks for what you’ve provided for us

    (I’m getting a severe case of deja vu…if I asked this already, sorry 😀 )

    1. Hey Gary,

      I will need to check into that for you. After I design and build my projects I hand my drawings over to someone else to re-draw them to be more “user-friendly” for the website. I am not sure what software he uses and what its abilities are.

  12. Jean, first Thank You for doing this! It really makes the first step much easier when it comes to building one of my own.

    Quick heads up though, if you do plan to integrate this project into sketchup, your dimensions don’t work out. I am not sure about other CAD type software, however I can’t see that it would be much different. While drawing up the base, the dimensions given overlapped one another by more than 3/8 of an inch. Not a lot but when each side is off by 3/8 it comes out to be a good chunk. I will finish modeling it later today, if you would like to take a look.

    Thanks again for making this available and for the videos as well.

    1. Hi Josh,

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention and please do send me an email on what you find.
      The imperial plans have been converted directly from my metric design so it is possible that a hickup could have occurred.

  13. Jean,
    I love this work bench I’m going to buy the plans and use the metric cut list. I know this probably is a stupid question but, I know all of you dimensions are in metric so I’m going to use that cut list to make my cuts just want to clarify since im used to inches and feet as well the dimensions are mm correct?
    Thanks again for a great build
    Mike

    1. Hey Mike,
      There are metric and imperial versions of the plans. Keep in mind that I designed and built the bench in metric. The imperial plans have been converted directly from metric and are expressed in thousands of an inch.

  14. Howdy… I have been trying to get hold of you for a little while as I recently purchased your all in one workbench plan, paid via PayPal but never rec’d a link or download…. so money for nothing at present ☹️. If you can reply to my email and send me either the odd or the link to download… thanks v much.

    Ps. Love the YouTube channel… gonna be making the workbench then using to make some other of your items

  15. I really love your plans and was wondering with the cut list is there a way you can update with a shopping list of material needed to build this I can’t seem to find it if you have already posted such a list thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Jeff,

      Unfortunately, the cutting list is all I can make available at this point. The plans are being purchased by people all over the world while I live in South Africa. The standard sizes and wood available to people differ by region and therefore it would be very difficult for me to make a single, universal material list available.

  16. Hey Jeff, I really like your table and i am planning on making something similar this winter. How did you determine the divisions of your table in Part #1? Did you just do something that looked right and spread the weight or was that design specific to the measurements of each of your tools?
