I am finally ready to admit that building decent frames on my folding table…is impossible.
My workbench needs to accommodate a miter saw (since working on the deck is also a horror show). I’m mostly constructing increasingly bizarre frames. I usually work without assistance, so clamping is essential. A limitation is the fact that I need to store this outside, which requires storage protection against weather and theft.
None of the following plans are quite right, but maybe I can combine a few.
A basic workbench.
This folding version might allow me to lock up tools inside, but it might not be any sturdier than the plastic folding table I already use.
These plans for a modular workbench includes a miter box table, which might save a lot of bother later on.
Isn’t this just a glorified sawhorse with clamps?
Many workbenches seem too fancy for the likes of me.
Or I could just buy one.
I know one person who simply uses gorilla shelves.
