This step by step woodworking project is about woodworking assembly table plans. This large workbench is ideas for assembling wood projects, as it sturdy and it has a generous tabletop. The table also features a large lower shelf, so you can store items and have them handy. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Building an assembly table plans
The first step of the project is to build the sides for the woodworking assembly table. Cut the components at the right dimensions and align everything with great care. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the horizontal supports and insert 2 1/2″ pocket screws into the legs. Make sure the corners are square and add glue to the joints.
Next, assemble the assembly workbench by fitting the rest of the supports. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ pocket screws for a professional result. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
Fit the 4×4 supports to the middle of the frames. Drill pocket holes at both ends and insert 2 1/2″ screws.
Reinforce the top of the assembly table by fitting 2×4 braces. Cut both ends of the braces at 45 degrees and lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws, after making sure the corners are square.
Build the lower shelf from 3/4″ plywood. Make notches to the four corners with a circular saw.
Fit the lower shelf into place and lock them into place with 1 1/2″ brad nails.
Use two sheets of 3/4″ plywood for the tabletop. Align the edges with attention and add glue so you lock them together tightly.
Fit the tabletop to the frame of the workbench, making sure you leave the right overhangs on all sides. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure you countersink the head of the screws, for a professional result.
If you are passionate about woodworking and you like to make things with your own hands, I recommend you to check out this sturdy 4×8 table. I have designed the table so you can assemble large projects very easily. If you want, you can add casters to the legs and then move it easily from one location to another.
