Always adjust the size of the work bench to your needs and invest in high-quality materials, if you want to get a professional and durable result. Top Tip: If you are looking for a traditional work bench, we recommend you to pay attention to the related plans.

Make sure the corners are right-angled and add waterproof glue to the joints, if you want to enhance the rigidity of the frame.
Continue the woodworking project by attaching the 2×4 legs to the structure with galvanized screws.
In addition, we recommend you to check if the frames are perfectly horizontal before locking the legs to the frames with galvanized screws. Attaching the plywood sheets to the frame of the work bench is a straight-forward process, but you need to pay attention to several things. Top Tip: Attach the plywood pieces to the frames and secure them into place with galvanized screws, after making sure they are aligned at both ends. If you want to create extra-storage space for the work bench, we recommend you to build a simple shelf and attach it to the top of the work bench.


Attach 2×2 cleats to the interior faces of the frame and lock them into place with galvanized screws.
In order to support the top shelf properly, we recommend you to cut a piece of 2×4 lumber and to attach it into place, as shown in the image. Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project, we recommend you to cover the components with carpet. Please read all the directions before beginning, and cut your pieces as you go, measuring before each cut.
If you want your lid to be hinged, go ahead and attach the hinges according to the manufacturer instructions. If you have a workshop or a garage, then you probably know how important is to have a work bench and how much added value it will bring to your projects. As you can easily notice in the plans, we recommend you to build the components from 2×4 lumber.
Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper. If you want to see more outdoor plans, we recommend you to check out the rest of our step by step projects. LIKE us on Facebook and Google + to be the first that gets out latest projects.


You can see links to the complete series here, and enter my Lowe's gift card giveaway here. If you have a Kreg Jig you can go ahead and attach these boards to each other to make a sturdier top. There are many ways in which you can get the job done in a professional manner, so make sure you take  look over the related plans before starting the actual construction. Work with attention and ask a skilled friend to assist you when assembling the bench, as you need someone to hold the components locked into place, while you insert the screws. I designed this for the bottom boards to sit side by side with no gaps, but if you are worried about drainage or anything you could omit a bottom board or two and leave a narrow gap between the boards.

Today's project goes along with yesterday's post - we're building an outdoor storage bench!
