This step by step diy woodworking project is about work table plans free. This article features detailed instructions for building a work table on caster wheels built entirely from 2x4s. However, you can adjust the size of the 48″ long bench to suit your needs. You can complete this project in just a few hours with basic tools. 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.
