The June 2021 issue of Popular Woodworking magazine features my article on the Maker Workstation. This is a basic PDF format drawing of the Modern Base designed for the 72″ workstation. All the basic dimensions you need are here. This workbench base design uses plywood (Baltic Birch recommended). Construction methods can be standard woodworking tools, but a CNC is recommended. All the dog holes require high accuracy and should be made using the Maker Workstation CNC-made templates. DXF template files are available in the woodworking.digital store. Physical templates will be available for ordering online soon.
Extended online Popular Woodworking articles that take you through the process of constructing the Modern Base is posted here.
As a reminder….
CNC-made templates are required for this project. To make them, you need template CAD files, a CNC, or a CNC service.
Ready-made Maker Workstation templates will be available for purchase as the woodworking. digital store, soon.
See the print issue or popularwoodworking.com for more project information and step-by-step articles to help you build the project.
