Nice work there. Looks like it folds up not down;)

Great concept and well thought out. Love it when nice things can be made with simple materials.
Enjoyed your web album as well. Thanks for sharing!

Good job. I have a similar one I built but it’s much smaller..I might have to make a larger one like this for another wall in my shop. I can’t see in the photos..what type of hinge did you use?

Great design! I need to build one for my garage also, and have been thinking how I would do it. But it looks like you did it for me! I may modify it a bit though, I have the room and I need about a 12 inch depth for shelves to hold various tools and items, that way when I fold the bench I don’t have to worry about anything falling off the shelves. I hope you don’t mind me stealing this design :-)

That looks really nice and well thought out. When you drill the bench dog holes, you could fit in a few slots for clamps. That would make your bench even more useful. Check out my mobile workstation. It is working out great.

VERY NICE! I have seen a lot of fold away work benches recently and your method of storing the legs is the best so far.

As i mention to most others building these, get yourself 3 spring loaded self closing door hinges. It helps a lot to assist with lifting the bench to close.
