Should You Have a Portable Workbench?

Jason Brown Wood Floors Portable Workbench

A portable workbench offers an easy-to-use, compact, and lightweight solution whenever you need to work without a permanent workbench.

Every woodworker needs a workbench. This is the most important surface in your workshop since you can’t really do a lot of the necessary work for your projects on the floor. While there will be times when you switch to a table saw or sawhorses, a lot of the work you do will be on your workbench. Permanent workbenches are always a great option for a permanent workspace where you do most of your work. However, it’s also a good idea to consider having a portable workbench on hand, such as the Festool Multifunction Table MFT/3, even if you have a permanent workspace. They have a number of benefits that make them a sound investment for every type of woodworker.

Ease of Use

A portable workbench is great because it’s compact and lightweight, making it the perfect option for anyone who does not have a fully dedicated space for woodworking. For instance, you might store your tools in your garage or shed, but not have extra space available for a permanent workbench and working area. Having a portable workbench means you can store it away when it’s not in use so you can park your car in your garage, or put your lawnmower back in the shed. 

It’s also a great investment if you often go to other work sites. A portable workbench can easily be packed up into your car and brought along anywhere you need it. This mobility is perfect for any woodworker that needs flexibility.

Lastly, unlike a permanent table, many portable workbenches can be height adjusted, allowing multiple people of varying heights to use it comfortably, or to offer maximum comfort while doing various tasks.


While a portable workbench is compact and lightweight, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to damage. These workbenches are actually built to be very durable and resistant to dents and wear. It’s the best of both worlds—you can have a solid, durable workbench that is also easily stored away when it’s not in use, and moved between work areas.
