This listing is for the digital plans for the "Versatile Workbench" as featured on the Shop Nation YouTube channel which is sure to increase your garage shop efficiency! This piece of shop furniture is intended to be used as an out feed table for your table saw, general workbench, and/or assembly table. The design is modular in nature so customizing to fit your exact needs is fairly easy. The workbench measures 72" long by 48" wide by 34.5" tall. The height was chosen so that it would work with most table saws, who have a height of 35".

There is a full build series on my YouTube channel (Shop Nation) if you would like to follow along. The first build video is set to release in late January 2021.

The approximate cost for building the workbench as designed with all of the bells & whistles is ~$1600 (this will of course vary for everyone)

Wood only - $475
Dust Collection System - $380
Electrical System - $75
Hardware - $250
Everything Else - $500 (router lift, T-Track, etc)

I'm currently in process of building the frame for the Versatile workbench. These plans are insane! The detail that went into making sure you can't screw this up is amazing. Tips and tricks along the way, the cutlist is crazy organized. I need to raise the height to work for my table saw, but just raising all vertical pieces does the trick. These are the best plans I have ever purchased, and priced fairly. Exceeded expectations and everything was described perfectly. The amazon links to purchase almost all of the hardware was also a real time saver.

This set of plans is awesome. In full color, detailed dimensions, clear instructions on the build in sequence, side notes on alternative methods, etc. I've already printed out the pages after a download, put them in plastic page protectors (in a binder)...ready to go out and buy materials and get this done! Make sure to look at Shop Nation youtube videos... this is entertaining and instructional! Gonna replace my 15 year old bench with a version of this one.
