Video: The Cosman Workbench
The Workbench is the most important tool for the hand tool woodworker, but until now a quality workbench was either too expensive to buy or too complicated to build. Rob solved both of these problems with The Cosman Workbench. While creating a quality workbench for professionals and beginners alike, he minimized the cost and skill to build his workbench. Made out of readily available materials, Rob's workbench has no difficult joinery and can be built in a weekend. Watch alongside Rob and Luther as they show you, step by step, in real time, mistakes and all, how to build The Cosman Workbench.

10/10. Rob put together great instructions for this workbench. Very informative and he made it really easy to build. I modified it slightly by making the top a little wider and added drawers underneath. Looking forward to many years of use.
This workbench is perfect, top is good for a flat reference and the base are very rock solid! Easy to build and require a minimum of tools. Thank you!!
The video was very helpful, I finally have a workbench, I've had plans for 4 in the last 3 years but never got the lumber to build, with ply and MDF I've got a solid work horse! Thanks Nate
My modified Colman workbench
Very good. Cut list was spot on. Lots of hole drilling for claiming msg. Finished mine with urethane and edged it with maple. Have 3 vices on it and casters. Has never used dog holes before but am learning the variety of uses for them. Would you like a picture of it?
Even though I won't be using this design (unaware of the ply legs and limited power tools), I thought the instructions were well planned. What impressed me the most was Rob called and thanked me for the purchase. I call that "excellent customer service" and I will definitely look at Rob's site for future purchases.
