    I started on my “Paulk Compact” inspired bench yesterday.

    Materials: 2 sheets 15/32″ BC plywood, glue, and staples
    Dimensions: 36″x72″x8.5″

    I still need to cut the 3/4″ holes in the top and make the horses. Using standard saw horses puts the top too high for me.

    Cost so far is ~$40 in materials and 2 hrs of my time.

    Don’t think that you will be disapointed

    Man that’s coming out great! I can’t wait to see the holes.

    Looking really nice so far. Looks like you bought the plans and are doing it from scratch. Nice.

    Nice work @dod. What will be the intended use? Assembly table?

    BE the change you want to see.

    Thank you all for the compliments.

    I didn’t purchase the plans, I just watched the Youtube series and came up with my dimensions.

    My thoughts for use will be as a general purpose workbench, assembly bench, and outfeed table for my DeWalt 745 table saw. I am really bad about letting my tools clutter up my workbench, hopefully this bench top will help.

    I have not decided how I will do the holes in the top. Any suggestions? I probably won’t do anything with it till this weekend.

    I used my LR32 rails and router mounted on it to add a row to my MFT. The LR32 holes are such that they line up exactly with the hole placements on a Festool MFT as they make them.

    My only error was in not placing a backer board for where the router ploughs thru the bottom. The holes end up with tearout in the MDF.

    Alternately, I’ve seen guys make jigs to make constant even spacing between the holes and use a drill with a 20mm forstner bit. If you will be using anything like parf dogs, you want perfect spacing of the holes.

    Here are my POS work tables, based upon Paulk’s video’s. They have served me very well.

    Obviously, I could now make them much easier and better with my CNC.

    Here’s a video showing how they are shipped, and put together.
    I just bought a set of plans, hopefully will soon have the time to build my own!

    Interesting video. That is one big box but looks easy enough to assemble.

    And I see the appeal. Building one is easy enough, but the dog holes are a PITA. I have considered something like this or like the Festool MFT/3, and always arrive at the conclusion that it makes sense to pay someone who has a CNC to mill the top, since the accuracy will impact the accuracy of every single thing built on it.

    I purchased a set of plans and printed them up, planning on building one soon. Probably won’t do the tablesaw supports, as I have the Bosch mounted on the gravity rise stand.
    I also have a set of Basswood’s tri-horse plans, I’m thinking of building a set of them and using them to set the bench on. Is that a dumb idea?

    I have both plans too . lol. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to building them. I like the Bass work station.
