This is a digital download (PDF) of the complete plans for what I call the "ultimate workbench." This essential piece of shop furniture for any small/compact workshop will surely add functionality and efficiency to your space. The plans are 70+ pages long and provide full-color, step by step instructions to build a complete workbench with the following features:

- Huge 4'x8' work surface with T-Track
- Integrated dust collection system (with automatic switch)
- Integrated power outlets for easy access while working
- Hardware organization to house bin organizers for hardware and small parts
- Tool storage drawers
- Locking swivel casters for mobility

These plans are broken down by "sub-process" so that this workbench can be tackled in bite-sized pieces. I detailed the construction of my ultimate workbench on my YouTube channel "Shop Nation"

Very professional plans, even I won’t have a problem following. Coupled with his 5-part video series, makes this even better. I like his style. Well done, sir.
