Continuing our woodworking adventures into Alabama, we arrive at the home of Woodcraft Magazine senior editor, Joe Hurst-Wajszczuk to cover his 20′ x 22′ interior garage space morphing into an extreme workshop makeover. The 2011 October/ November Issue #43 of Woodcraft Magazine features a special topic on this floor to ceiling, wall to wall transformation with detailed projects, providing instruction on turning any garage, basement or outside structure into a viable workshop. Joe is tasked with converting his 20′ x 20′ two-car attached garage into an organized, fully functioning, safe workshop. The “BEFORE” photo below will give you an idea of what Joe started with. If the clutter and disorganization looks similar to your work area, then perhaps this information may help you build a workshop makeover too.

Conventional router lifts provide decent bit adjustment, but most still leave you with an endless cranking chore when it’s time to switch bits. The Pinnacle Premium Router Quick-Lift is different. With a quarter-turn twist, the spring-assisted lift wrench releases and then helps support the carriage to make changing bits and resetting the rough bit depth a fast and smooth operation.
Better workbench than scaffold
This has many good features as a workbench, but I cannot get the leg braces to lock on in the scaffolding mode. They pop off no matter how I arrange them or the legs. I don't stand on this thing for that reason. Somebody smart engineered the table, and then some not-so-smart engineer did the folding leg braces as an after-thought. I have three other brands of portable work tables. I always reach for the Vika last.
Best thing I bought in a long time
Great table. I put three inches on the legs so its not to low for me.
use it for carving and my wife for quilting
A scaffold that's light, height adjustable , sturdy and can support all you can put on it.
Very sturdy and stable
I found the workbench to be very stable also larger and higher than other "walk benches"
it's a very good product
everyday,and for projects around the house it,s very strurdy and I'll live with it being on the heavier side, haven't found any negative uses so far.
I bought a second one for a relative!
Very versatile. Love it!
...I am very satisfied with this purchase, it had arrived in excellent conditions...Once again you made it Woodcraft!
Worth the money
Great all around work table
Good product, BAD packaging.
Overall I really like the product. It was a gift from my wife. It's perfect for me because I do not have a dedicated shop, and typically roll out everything into the backyard to work on projects. The versatility, adjustable height and integrated power strip are all excellent. It easily folds up for storage in small space- important for my use case. But the issues surround the packaging and shipping. This is a 50 lb table packed in a single layer cardboard box. The first two units shipped were damaged. Damage included bent handles, crushed legs, and various scrapes and dings. Woodcraft was good each time about sending out replacements. But I have to question the quality of their warehouse staff if they keep repeating the same packaging errors. It's clear the box this comes in is not up to the task. I suggested they add extra protection around the edges to shield the legs from damage. But instead, the boys in shipping just stuffed some more cardboard into the inside on the flat surface where it did no good. They either don't have a clue, or don't care. I would suggest anyone thinking about purchasing one of these pick it up in store to avoid the hassles we went through over three weeks.
for homeowner/part time contractor use
The version that I bought this afternoon doesn't have the vise or bench dogs, it might be important for some others but it isn't a deal breaker for me. It might be awkward for some the first couple of times setting it up or taking it down. In a cramped area, open it up first, then move it in you may need help. It appears to be well made and I didn't have the problem another reviewer mentioned. Two only major drawbacks will be for most that the step to get on the scaffold is to high and you will need 2 foot step ladder. The other is they could have used another set of holes midway between the bench height and the scaffold height.
I purchased this to aid in interior painting of ceilings, upper walls and crown molding, for which it is well suited. It comes with two carrying handles which work well. I like the fact that this has two different height adjustments, tho I don't see why they couldn't have placed some more adjustment holes. The overall design and strength strike me as consumer grade rather than pro-grade, the scaffold deck being made of plastic which flexes to some degree... will see how long that lasts. The folding diagonal knee-braces that stabilize the legs don't seem to want to hook into place on their pegs as tightly as intended... they tend to roll up the pegs as you pivot the braces into place thereby not being as securely locked in place. You have to manually press them onto the pins AFTER you have locked the braces straight.The 43# weight of this unit is easy enough for me (6'tall x 175#) to handle very comfortably all day.[...] [*] I assumed that this was a Scandinavian product by the name... I should've known better. Based on that alone I'm going to say that I can't recommend this to a friend. [*]
This stand's versatility is why I bought it...its quality is why I'll keep it. Great product. Very handy for occasional DIY tasks around the house. I could see pros going for it too.

Excellent heavy duty scaffolding
As someone who weighs enough to make cheap ladders and scaffolds groan, having a heavy duty scaffolding product such as this is wonderful. It's weight limit is rated high enough that I can even have another person up on it with me, which is nice when hanging crown or ceiling lights. The base is wide enough so that there is no wobble no matter where you stand on the top. I have not used the workbench side of it, but it looks to be pretty good as well. The top of the scaffolding side is a grate which does let some things fall through. However, the grate is large enough so that it is easy to retrieve those items. The one thing I would change would be to put two steps on the legs instead of just one. That would make it much easier to get up and down.
