Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What shop equipment do I need?

You do not need an industrial shop to build this bench or the tool chest! Given its design simplicity, it can be built in an average size homeowners shop that includes the following: chop saw, tablesaw, bandsaw, drill press, portable planer, router, and various hand tools that all shops should have on hand – including a selection of bar and pipe clamps. Although not necessary, a jointer would be helpful to facilitate the construction of the bench. Additionally, a router table may be helpful for the milling of the raised panels on the tool chest, but these could be cut on a tablesaw.
