Building a Portable Workshop – SketchUp Demo

by Jim on April 26, 2017


PLACE YOUR SHOP WHEREVER YOU NEED IT – Put this bench/cabinet combo right to work.

Here’s another workbench concept that’s designed for a small shop. If you’re using a temporary or small work area to build your projects, this bench can help keep most of your milling tools handy. There’s room to run a benchtop saw and storage for your favorite hand and power tools.

Using SketchUp Make, I’ll run through the design and construction tactics used to build the bench. Joinery used on this project includes pocket hole joints, rabbits, biscuit joints, a few wood screws and dowels. For materials, I’ve gone with ¾ inch pine, ½ inch MDF and a couple ¼ inch pegboard sections.
