I’ve decided to build a work table for the side wall of my garage. I’d like it to be about 12 feet long by 2 feet deep, with drawers and cabinets underneath (sort of like a kitchen counter top and cabinets, but made with sturdy but lower-cost materials).
I have a separate Roubo workbench that I use for construction and assembly, so the worktable is intended partly for supporting bench-top tools (such as a drill press, a grinder, and a bandsaw) and partly for storage (I’d like to have both cabinets and drawers under the work surface). The worktable will need to be sturdy enough to support the bench-top tools I’ve described.
Can anyone refer me to plans or magazine articles that describe how to make such worktable? I don’t have a biscuit joiner or a pocket-hole jig, but I might by one if required.
(Note: my garage slopes about an inch from back to front, so I’d need to be able to build the work table so the surface is level).
