Adjustable Height Workbench
Hello and welcome to the new Jack Bench website. I am very excited to introduce the new website and the changes that have been made. I hope this can be a place that can fuel discussion amongst wood workers and generate ideas. And I will be posting weekly blogs to help facilitate this conversation. So, I think we should get to it, the exciting news:
The plans for the ergonomic, movable, and adjustable height Jack Bench can now be obtained through digital download! This allows you to get to work immediately, rather than waiting a couple days for them to arrive via mail. This is a great option for younger woodworkers who utilize a tablet. Of course, for those who still like large, physical copies of the plans, ones that they can hold in their hands, the plans can still be purchased through regular mail. Both options have their own benefits, and it really depends on your personal preference which one you want.
Hard Copy Workbench Plans
The physical plans are great because they are printed on 11×17 paper and this large format enables woodworkers to get an up close and personal look at the plans. They can also be filed away and pulled out years later should you want to build the bench again. These plans are probably the best option for people who still like to read an actual newspaper, instead of dealing with the internet.

This is a good option for people who use tablet computers in their workshop. People who choose this option could print the plans, however they would be either condensed or split up as standard home printers use 8.5”x11” paper and the plans that I sell come on 11”x17” paper. Although, when you use the plans on a tablet computer, you can zoom in and get close looks at the plans, just like you could with the hard copy plans. Really, it all depends on your personal preference and if you mind waiting a couple days for the plans or you want them immediately.
DIY Workbench Plans & More
With the new Jack Bench website, not only will I continue to offer plans for the adjustable height workbench, but other plans will be offered too. Right now plans are being drawn up for a jewelry box with a locking mechanism and those will be offered shortly. And more plans will be coming too. So remember to check back here often as I will always be adding to and updating the site. Also, if any of you have recently built a Jack Bench, I would love to see pictures of it. Always curious to see others’ creations. Until next time, Charlie Kocourek.
