  • After moving houses (and workshops) with my family 4 times since I started woodworking in 2012, I decided this time to design my shop with the concept of mobility. Whether I need to take the shop on site to help someone or to the next house/workshop if we ever move again I want this to go with me. Essentially, I want a “plug in and play” shop from now on. After lots of research, I found the Ron Paulk Workbench! This workbench was designed by Rob Paulk who has a ton of experience with contracting and woodworking, and his design represents his knowledge of both great utility and mobility. The two-part top allows it to fit in a van or a truck, and makes it easy to move around the shop or take on site. It’s also incredibly sturdy! I documented my entire build and I’m excited to bring you this comprehensive, instructional, multi-part video series on how to make it! I hope it helps you as you make your Paulk Workbench or a variation that fits your needs. Part 1 of this multi-video series focuses on the main cuts for the workbench/assembly table and how to make the saw horses. (You can learn more and download the plans on the Ron Paulk Website here: http://www.paulkhomes.com)

    First off, great video...very helpful. Ron's plans don't really give a ton of detailed explanations. I'm new to using a router with a template, so this may be a total newb question. Did you account for the difference between your collar and bit when using it to but the other three saw horses and spreaders or was the difference not really important for this particular application?

    You can get 4 parts for the saw horse bench stands. Cut out one pattern with a jigsaw and invert pattern to fit on board.

    Best workbench I've ever owned for catching sawdust. Looks good but not a patch on traditional benches.

    12:18 Not a sliding square, but a combination square
    12:35 Not pan head screws, but truss washer head lath screws
    13:38 Still a combination square, definitely not a speed square which is a totally different tool.

    I built my Paulk bench a couple years ago and find it an invaluable part of my daily work whether in the shop or on the job! I can't believe I survived so many years without it!!
