Building the Paulk Workbench, Part 1 | Main Cuts & Saw Horses

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.
