Building the Paulk Workbench, Part 2 | Main Torsion Box

This is Part 2 of my multi-video series showing you how I made my 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 2 of this multi-video series focuses on the main torsion box body, top and bottom of the workbench/assembly table. (You can learn more and download the plans on the Ron Paulk Website here:
