DIYers with limited space will love this portable workbench! It’s easy to set up and folds flat for storage. See how to build this must-have for the workshop!
I think when you’ve grown up on a 40 acre farm, the farmland never leaves you.
While I kinda live in the middle of a countrified suburbia, if I pull all my tools outdoors and face my favourite view, I’m back on that farmland again, listening to Dad clamouring away in the barn, with the snap of the air dried laundry sailing overtop my mom’s amazingly abundant prize winning garden.
A portable, collapsible workbench every DIYer needs
I also adore working outdoors! With the warm wind on my face and the sun warming up my arms, I was more than ready to get my fix of vitamin D.
So when I landed this amazing portable workbench / work table at a local thrift not long ago, I gasped! I knew exactly where I desired to use this. Right in my own backyard.
I’ve been woodworking outdoors here and there already, but always lugging around a heavy sawhorse or two and full sized boards for a table top. This is better. SO much better.
Here’s a peek at how this mobile and compact bench works in case you feel inclined to make one yourself.

3 collapsible legs
All three sets of legs collapse into the inside of the table via various hinges.
One side tucks in first…
… then the centre legs collapse against the first…
The workbench collapsed
… fit the other legs inside their section, close the latches…
The workbench fully closed
While the mobile workbench offers easy storage, it’s also compact enough where you don’t even really need a large workspace to use it. Bonus!
Although the folding workbench is a lightweight design, the solid base durability, stability and weight capacity will handle woodworking projects without issue.
Isn’t it fabulous?! The large work surface offers plenty of room to spread out the tools and lumber. And the versatility to move it where desired? What’s not to love about an outdoor work site?
Ohhh… and I made new accessories to go with my new favorite workpiece!
