Workbench Leg Kit

If you want a workbench fast, and you want it to last, then this is the kit for you. Combined with only 2x4s and plywood, this kit allows you to create a workbench of any size that will last indefinitely-all in less than an hour. The sturdy resin legs have a greater strength-to-weight ratio than steel, and are specially engineered to combat racking forces and keep the assembly perfectly square. With a weight capacity of up to 1000 lbs. per shelf, it'll hardly break a sweat under as much weight as you can dish out. Use full 4' 8' sheets of plywood for a spacious assembly bench, or throw together a power tool stand as small as 2'x2'. It's the perfect solution for custom sizes, and incredibly easy to modify. No miters, no tricky cuts or joints - all you need is a drill and a saw!


Features:

  • Great for all kinds of work benches: assembly tables, tool stands, potting benches and more
  • Rugged resin workbench legs boast a better strength to weight ratio than steel
  • Only straight 90 degree cuts are required
  • All hardware is included

Great Product!
Highly recommend this kit. Very easy to put together by yourself. I even purchased some heavy duty casters to install at the base of my benches so the benches could be moved around easily if needed.

Workbench legs
I bought these legs when they first came out. I waited this long as I was skeptical about how they would hold up. My bench is 8' long 2' deep and shelves are braced at 24". I have loaded the shelves and have a mortis machine and a 12" compound miter saw plus a 4 draw storage cabinet on top. These legs are amazing Why spend the time and money on wood when you can have a perfect bench in an hour

I needed a sturdy stand to hold two 35gal tanks to prepare salt water for my aquarium. Very easy to construct and very strong.

deborah d on Jul 3, 2018
can I put on these legs?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure what this question really means. The legs come with the hardware needed to install the legs onto 2x4 stock lumber. I used a cordless drill to drive the screws into the lumber. I have two workbenches using these legs and they are exactly what I needed. One bench has the two lower shelves for extra storage, one only has the top and bottom slelf.
Can swivel casters be mounted to the legs?
Michael H on Dec 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not that I could determine. The bottom of the legs is “L” shaped. & there isn’t enough room to mount legs.
Would these legs be suitable for a worktable for a wood lathe?
John W on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: John: Since I haven't worked with a wood lathe, it's hard to be specific. I have two tables using these legs. One is 48 by 24 and I use as a wood working bench. I put rockler t-tracks into the top to hold pieces in place. What I like about the table is that it is very solid and stable but also relatively light and can be easily moved. My other table is my reloading station (24x36). I can size and reload rifle and piston casings with a press mounted on the table top. Again very stable but light. Rigidity comes from the 3/4 plywood work surfaces connected to the 2x4 horizontal pieces. I hope this helps.
Hello. The legs are made of what stuff?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are ABS Plastic. We built 2 benches using 3/4 Plywood and 2x4's - I think you could put a car on it, we will be ordering again to make benches for our special assembly area. Highly recommend.
Is the price per leg or per set of 4?
Daniel S on Apr 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This item includes 4 legs and all assembly hardware.
Does everything come with this for a complete work bench?
Janet A on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is just the four legs. You then supply 2 x 4's and whatever work surface you want and configure to meet your needs. The 2 x 4's make up the frame, in whatever dimensions you want. It is a rock solid set up and quite easy to assemble. I have one I set up as an assembly table that is about 35 x 65 with a melamine top with T-tracks and a full lower shelf. It is very strong and solid.
I need 31" high legs, these are 36". Do you make them shorter or can they be cut?
Elizabeth Y on Sep 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you cut 5 inches off the bottom you would not be able to use a full width 2x4 for the bottom shelf. You would have to rip the 2x4's to width to fit and they may then be sitting on the floor. If floor got wet you might have a problem. If you didn't use a bottom shelf, you would definitely need the middle shelf to provide rigidity to the table. I have two of these systems, one with no middle shelf only a top and bottom shelf and the system is very rigid. I don't know what would happen if you only had only a top and middle. The legs are made of a plastic that can easily be cut with sharp tools. I routered my top on one table to take the Rockler track system and the router easily cut the dado in the plastic legs. This is an easy system to assemble and you can make the table almost any dimension you need. One of my tables is 24" by 52" and one is 30" by 40" to fit my needs. I hope this helps. Nick
Is there a web on the bottom of the legs so that I might attach wheels for ease of movement ?
Biff D on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, there is not a web at the bottom of the legs. However, I found it a simple matter to attach a 4x4 block under the bottom support and attach locking casters to them. The bench can be easily moved and then immobilized by locking the casters.
Assuming the legs are pre-drilled for the shelf support 2x4s, what is the vertical distance between the top and middle shelves, or can this distance be varied during assembly?
William P on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The legs are set up for the top and a bottom shelf. About six inches down from the top there a set of squared holes for one bolt, although the ideal circumstance is for two (actually 4) for each leg. About 11 inches down the setup is for 4 holes. But I'm not sure that all legs are the same. I have two different arrangements.
How do you attach the diagonal support piece (D)? The instructions appear to say no screws?
Emily M on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Correct, the diagonal rests on top of the gussets molded into the legs--it's just there to resist "racking", albeit on the horizontal axis. That said, I didn't use it when I used these legs to build a workbench with drawers, I created triangular corner plates out of 1/2" ply and bolted them to the bottom of the 2x4 frame. The result is very solid and...accommodates drawers.
Do you need to have the middle shelf?
Thomas H on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You don't need to, but I think it helps make it more rigid. For the bottom and middle shelves I router a 1/2" groove in the center of 2x4s and frame the 1/2" thick plywood shelves. I use Kreg's HD screws to connect the outer 2x4 frame before attaching the legs. I just use a 2x4 frame on top and lay a used solid flush door for a bench top. The shelves are very rigid and have a 1.5" lip to prevent stuff from rolling off. I've used the leg kits on 2 workbenches now. One for me and one for a son-in-law. Good stuff.
Am considering using leg kit with treated (but safe) exterior lumber for a diy BBQ table to house my kamoda grill. Will legs hold up outside, and can they be painted?
William P on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for my shop outside as I made a work bench and putting it together I asked my wife to hold pieces while I attached. It is quit easy to assemble to the length and width you want. It is very durable and if you want to you can paint the legs, but I didn't paint mine as I left the original. I know you will like this.
Can castors be attached to the legs?
Rooner on Nov 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could put them into the lower 2 x 4's with no problem. The legs might require an additionional wood block
Are the plastic legs UV resistant?
Robert on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know they don't seem to fade when exposed to the sun. Two of my legs on my bench are exposed to the sun off and on all summer when I have my garage door open, which is pretty much most days during the summer. Hope this helps.
