DIY workbench with storage
, including drawers and shelves, with this detailed step-by-step guide.
A workbench is the heart of a workshop. Combine that with storage; you have an organized and functional space to bring your DIY projects to life.
DIY Workbench with Storage
– Lumber per the plans – Pocket Hole Jig – 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws – 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws – 2″ trim head screws or wood screws – 18″ drawer slides – Workbench casters – Wood glue
Prepare the Lumber
– Cut all the lumber per the plans. – Sand all the boards.
Step 2 - Build the Frame
Start by building the side workbench legs by attaching the 2×4 aprons to the legs using 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue.
Step 3 - Add the Shelf
This is a great time to cut and install the bottom shelf. When I built the table saw stand, I struggled to get the bottom shelf in once all the other aprons were attached.
