These instructions are a complete step by step guide that will show you how to build the One Minute Workbench MicroShop
This project is designed to be an EASY build – no crazy joinery…HOWEVER….
THIS PROJECT IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS!
You MUST have a good understanding of using a table saw in order to build one. There will be parts of this build that will require you to use the table saw while it is partially built. Again you MUST be proficient in table saw use to use a saw in a partially built state. Do NOT attempt any aspect of this project if you feel uncomfortable. You assume all liability for injury or death by proceeding with this project!
About the plans:
- Formatted for normal sized (8.5″ x 11″) printer paper, so you can print them at home.
- Includes Imperial (U.S.) version
- Includes Metric version
- They also include:
- A complete shopping list for the materials you need.
- A complete list of parts you need to cut with all the dimensions necessary (with images).
- Step by step instructions that accompany and compliment the build video.
About the MicroShop:
- 30″ (76cm) wide x 20″ (51cm) deep x 15 & 5/8″ (40cm) tall.
- Includes a table saw, router table, jigsaw table, 9″ (22.9cm) disc sander, drill press, and oversized miter gauge with extended material support arm.

Tools required (or at least strongly suggested) to build this project:
- Circular Saw
- Jig Saw
- 23 Gauge Pin Nailer & Compressor (unless your Pin Nailer is electric) (this is optional, but HIGHLY recommended)
- Drill with the following bits (or metric equivalents): 7/64″ brad point, 1/8″ brad point, 9/64″ metal drilling bit (for pilot holes in saw bases),1/4″ brad point, 5/16″, 5/16″-18 tapping, 3/8″ brad point, 1/4″ spade (long), 3/4″ spade, 7/8″ spade, 1″ spade, 1/4″, router bit, 1/2″ forstner, 7/8″ forstner, 1″ forstner
- Caliper (Highly Recommended)
- Wire Strippers
- Flat File
- 9″ Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Sanding Discs (available at Harbor Freight)
- Hacksaw (or Angle Grinder)
- Coping Saw (you can get by without this, but it sure made my life easier)
Wondering if your existing tools that will fit?
The guide below shows the overall maximum dimensions of the tools I used. If your tools are smaller than this, they will most likely fit without any modifications needed. If you your tools are larger than this, then you will likely have to modify the tool layout inside the cabinet, or use tools that are smaller. Depending on your specific set of tools, you may have one that is smaller, and one that is larger, in which case you could probably get them all to fit by simply adjusting the tool layout a bit. Measurements are shown both in inches and centimeters:
