Multi-Function Workbench by Russ

Post by Suso » Mon Jun 10, 2019 4:07 pm

Amazing version of my bench by Russ Prince, he has made some interesting changes such as using t-track guides to hold pieces and placing a long power strip in the front of the bench. He has used pine plywood instead of birch plywood, and two Mdf boards instead of a beech finger joint board for the bench top. He has wrote me:

I've had a busy weekend. Got most of the build finished. Just need to make drawers and put a laminate top on.

Looks Great! Did you use blockboard for the countertop?

I used 2 sheets of MDF with a formica laminate for the top surface. Makes such a great assembly table and is easy to clean as nothing will permanately stick to formica.

Thanks for posting Suso. A great workbench / assembly table for sure. For those that may be interested all told I spent around $700 to build this table (for 100% everything including casters, sliders, hinges, t-track and storage bins). Expensive, but I doubt you could buy something anywhere near that price with as much functionality. I really love all the storage in this thing. The Harbor Freight storage bins are awesome, but this design also gives full length storage right below the tabletop and along the bottom as well, so I can store something up to 6 foot long in there and it's completely hidden. The table is a great design, thanks Suso, best plans I've ever bought.

Yes the plans are available on this website. It's what I used to make this bench.

Great Idea - Will try to do the same with my workbench

I love the recessed finger pulls. Can you post a close up shot of those...and maybe share exactly how you achieved it?
