PWB101H21 Portable Workbench


The most important tool in any shop is a good workbench. Many aspiring woodworkers live in apartments or have limited space. This situation may result in using the “kitchen table” as a work surface. This class will help you solve this problem. You will make a sturdy workbench that is portable. Not only is it portable, but it also breaks down to the size of a large suitcase and with a convenient handle can be moved around freely.

Portable Workbench Workshop

Open to All

No prior experience required

Every wood shop needs a workbench. But what if you don’t have a shop to put that workbench in? We’ve got the solution for you!

This clever portable workbench provides a roomy, sturdy work surface with slots for bench dogs and clamps, plus a bottom shelf to stash your tools. And when you’re done for the day, it folds up into a box the size of a large suitcase for convenient storage. It even has a carry handle.

Based on a great design from The Woodsmith Shop, this bench is perfect for woodworkers who live in an apartment or who need — or want — to move their woodworking base around, such as to a patio, worksite, or friend’s house. Just carry the box wherever you want it, open it up and you’ve got a shop!

Our Portable Workbench Workshop will get your woodworking off the kitchen table and help you learn some new skills along the way.

In just three days, you’ll make the entire workbench from a single sheet of plywood, including installing the hardware and smoothing out the edges for comfort.

You will learn how to:

  • follow a plan
  • process plywood
  • cut out shapes and slots
  • refine edges
  • install hardware with precision
  • and more

No prerequisite necessary. Class is suitable for beginners.
