This listing is for the digital download of the full woodworking plans to make the compact dust collection workbench as featured on the Shop Nation YouTube channel.

This compact piece of shop furniture will add some serious horsepower to any small shop. The design is intended to be used with the Kreg ACS as the top surface but any top can be installed. Take your workshop to the next level and gain some ground in the pursuit of "Shop Greatness."

Great set of plans. Very detailed, however page numbers (small extra detail) would’ve been helpful after it was all printed. Not a big deal but I found myself having to pile up pages in groups of different build sections when jumping from one item to the next. If you’re working off a computer or phone, then it’s not an issue. I just like to work off paper in my shop. Overall though, very impressed with Travis’ detail and time put in to the product. Looking forward to seeing how my end result turns out!
