Plans are detailed and well generated. I can easily build the whole thing on a subset of the plans (whatever that I need for my workflow needs).
I'm completely new to woodworking and wanted to build a bench could be put away when not in use, but still be practical. I came across the paulk workbench on youtube and bought the plans. I have not incorporated the table saw or router table yet, but may add them later. I was very impressed with the strength of the bench, even jumped up myself and I'm 200lbs. solid as a rock. I manually laid out the hole pattern and drilled with a forstner bit, took my time and it worked out well. overall I'd give the plans a 10/10 for clarity and information. I'm a mechanical engineer, and found these plans to be top quality.
There are a few steps on the plans that were confusing but over all excellent
Great design thanks
The plans are fantastic and easy to follow. My only criticism is that the metric measurements would be better if slightly altered. eg change 178mm to 180, 102mm to 100 or 152 to 150mm. In hindsight I wish I'd done that, but instead I followed the plans to the letter.
Well written and easy to follow
