The "Shmedium" Garage Shop Workbench - Digital Plans
Digital file type(s): 1 PDF
This listing is for the digital plans for the "Shmedium Workbench" which is the scaled down version of the "Versatile Workbench" as featured on the Shop Nation YouTube channel. This small design packs a punch for it's size and 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 60" long by 38" 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 of the similar "Versatile" workbench on my YouTube channel (Shop Nation) if you would like to follow along.
The approximate cost for building the workbench as designed with all of the bells & whistles is ~$1100 (this will of course vary for everyone)
Wood only - $375
Dust Collection System - Varies
Electrical System - $75
Hardware - $150
Everything Else - $500 (router lift, T-Track, etc)

Well designed product and very clear plans. I modified the plans slightly and took out two drawers to make rooms for an on board shop vac to make the entire thing self-contained for dust collection. The modular approach to building made it bite-sized and easy to feel a sense of accomplishment without the entire project being complete.
This is my second purchase from Travis and I love it. There is absolutely no one that can come close to the amount of detail and easy to follow instructions in a professional package like shop nation! I just look at the other Brazilian five star comments that I'll rave the same thing
I have been looking for a bench, and this one really fits my needs. I have adapted some of these accessories in my current table saw bench. Looking forward to build this one.
Hands down, Travis makes the best woodworking plans on the planet. The amount of detail, information, and overall design and layout are the best you’ll find.
