My workshop space is extremely limited and doesn't allow for a large, strong, permanent, and affordable workbench for woodworking projects. I needed a way to set up the workbench quickly and that would disassemble quickly and store in a minimal amount of space.
I designed this project to be a cheap, strong workbench that can be assembled by one person in just a few minutes. It does not require fasteners of any kind - it is made entirely from two 4'x8' sheets of MDF. The pieces are interlocking - they assemble just like Lincoln Logs. It has storage areas for my assembled table saw, power tools and shop vac.
This is a picture of the assembled table.
I made mine entirely using a cheap Craftsman 10" table saw with a panel cutting jig and 3/4" dado blade. It could be made with a 7" circular saw and a straightedge, too.
