Saw Bench Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about saw bench plans. I have designed this saw bench so you can make the most of your workshop space and to ease your cutting process, if you use hand tools. This bench is sturdy and it requires butt joints, so anyone can make one in a few hours. Take a look over the rest of our woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a saw bench

Building the suports

Building the supports

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the legs for the saw bench. As you can easily notice in the diagram, I recommend you to build the components from 2×6 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the slats and get the job done with a saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and make sure the corners are square.

Assembling the frames

Assembling the frames

Fit the 2×4 supports to the legs, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the legs. Leave no gaps between the components and add waterproof glue to the joints. Make sure the corners are square for a professional result.

Fitting the top of the benches

Fitting the top of the benches

Attach the top slats to the sides of the bench, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and lock everything with attention using 2 1/2″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure there are no gaps between the components for a professional result.

Fitting the base plates

Fitting the base plates

After building the sides of the bench, you need to lock them together by fitting the base slats into place. Drill pilot holes through the 2×4 plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the sides of the bench. Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components for a professional result.

Now that the saw bench is assembled, all you are left to do is take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper.
