I wanted to upgrade my workbench with some extra bells and whistles. I had a basic workbench handed down from my father—in-law that was really great but was looking to increase the size and get more functionality out of for the space taken up in my small garage. I mounted a shop vac and cyclone dust separator into the base. The dust collection box has a see through window to see when it needs to be emptied. I intended the removable top to be adjustable but haven’t worked out the design yet. Also included pegboard as an after thought to provide more storage space front, side, and back. 2 vises pulled from the old workbench were pretty easily incorporated. The last item I included but haven’t worked out yet is a built in downdraft table. Haven’t worked out how to get good suction. Any ideas would be greatly welcomed for the adjustable top and downdraft table.
