This is the new addition in my small workshop (12’X12’) I built this wall to wall (12’ long) table, entirely wall mounted, without occupying any floor space. it is in two sections of 5’ each supported by three wall brackets. Wall brackets are made of 2×4, into L shaped bracket and is sandwitched with 1/2” triangular pieces of plywood to add strength to the brackets. Workbench is 24” deep. in the center i incorporated my miter saw with appropriate brackets to align the miter saw top with bench top on both sides.
I wish to place all my bench power tools (drill press, mounted angle grinder, mounted belt sander and mounted power planer, pocket hole station etc. I have a festool style MFT and a heavy duty workbench to supplement working area on that small room.

Don’t stop now. Add a ledger across the front to add strength to the work surface.
Then build some drawers to hold the various hand tools you use at that spot.

Good luck. It looks pretty sturdy.

Thanks for the nice words Mr. Phllips. After I built this, the way I organise my work in my shop has undergone dramatic change and vacuuming the shop has b4ecome very easy as there are no obstructions on the floor.

Grateful thanks for your suggestions Mr. Stringer. Adding drawers was definitely on my mind, but ledger across the front, as suggested by you, would definitely add strength to the whole bench.

Looks great. I did this same thing in my last shop. (Wall mounted benches) I also built in drawers under the benchtop.
