Building a portable, affordable workbench for small spaces

When I was the editor-in-chief of the Make: website, for years, one of the most trafficked posts was one on how to build a basic workbench. Makes sense. Having a decent work surface is the first step in delving into regular DIY projects.

In this 3×3 Custom video, woodworker Tamar creates a portable, affordable workbench that can turn any table, desk, floor, or other surface into a maker's workbench. The bench includes a woodworker's vise and capabilities for clamping down all shapes and sizes of workpieces.

Tamar has plans on her website for the workbench which are available for five bucks.
