Fold down workbench plans 2 pieces of 2×4 lumber - 8′. 1 piece of 4×4 lumber - 8′. 2 pieces of 1×1 lumber - 8′. 1 piece of 3/4″ plywood - 4'x4′. 50 pieces of 2 1/2″ screws. 50 pieces of 1 1/4″ screws. 2 pieces of 7″ carriage bolts. 2 hinges, 1 latch. wood glue, stain/paint.
Attach the hinges for each leg of the workbench until the legs of the workbench can be mounted. Make sure you can get accurate alignments. Then, attach a small bolt lock on every leg to prevent the doors of the workbench from swinging shut when the table is down. Then, fasten the workbench tabletop to the wall mounts.
The vast majority of the existing free workbench plans out there are for full size workbenches. After all the chips fell I organized the full size plans into basic workbenches for the handyman, woodworker workbench plans, professional/extreme woodworker workbench plans and traditional woodworker workbench plans (more for the galoots out there ;)
