Introducing the Kreg Universal Bench.

The easy, affordable way to create your own custom workbench!

Any Space. Any Task. Any Size.

The all-new Kreg Universal Bench system reinvents the workbench by making it easy for you to create a custom heavy-duty workbench, assembly table, tool stand, or outfeed table in a size that you choose to fit your space, your projects, and your needs.


That’s because the Universal Bench isn’t just another workbench. It’s a system of rails and adjustable-height legs, both made from thick, durable steel, that are available in multiple sizes. By combining legs and rails, you can create a bench in 15 possible square or rectangular sizes—from 14"x14" up to 64"x64"—and two different heights.


YOU choose the bench height!

Sturdy 12-gauge steel legs in two sizes (29"- 35" Tall & 15¼"- 21¼" Tall) offer 6" of unlimited height adjustability, so you choose the exact bench height you want.


YOU choose the width and depth!

Steel rails in 5 lengths let you create a bench in one of 15 possible sizes to fit your space and your projects!


YOU make your bench your own!

To complete your Universal Bench, add a bench top made from the material you choose using predrilled mounting holes. Extra holes allow you to mount a shelf, storage, and other accessories to further customize your bench.

2 Sizes of Adjustable-Height Legs:

  • 29"-35" Tall

Nice look.  How is rigidity?  will it be on display at the #TheWoodworkingShow in Indianapolis in January?

The workbench on the left shows cabinets and drawers - is that a hint that those accessories will also be available come january?

Made in CHINA? 

Rigidity is excellent. The benches are rated to hold 600 lbs. The legs are made of 12-gauge steel (1/8" thick) and the rails are 14-gauge. Many other metal benches are made from much thinner stock. Plus, our rails have a full "C" shape that makes them very stiff and rigid, rather than a simple "L" shape that can flex. We wanted these benches to be STURDY. Even the levelers show this: We used oversize bolts and feet for strength and solid footing.

We built the cabinet and drawers underneath the one in the photo to demonstrate how you can enclose the bench. We won't be selling under-bench storage cabinets, BUT:
Every set of Universal Bench legs comes with a FREE downloadable plan for so that you can build your own under-bench storage system!

Hm. Well, the picture on  (when you click "How do I build One") shows a colored benchtop and a colored cabinet. It's true that the text only calls out the benchtop and accessories (but the pic, again, hints at more).

Some benches don't need drawers/cabinets - but the ones that do need them, that's often where the quality comes in to question (meaning, that's where I usually feel they're too flimsy).

I need one of these!

Why tempt everyone without showing the cost? This was a waste of time. Come back when you have ALL the useful information!

The workbench is probably not going to be cheap. Workbenches are professional looking.

There's some pricing information in one of my earlier replies. Rails start at $20.99 for a set of 14" rails (4 rails in a set) to $77.99 for a 64" set. Leg sets start at $59.99. You'll need 2 sets of rails, 1 set of legs. Add materials for a top and shelf--we made the tops shown from a double layer of MDF with hardwood edging--and you'll have a very sturdy, well-built bench at a very reasonable price!



By the way, one more cool feature of the rails: You can mount the upper rails right under the bench top, or drop them down lower to make space to add a set of drawers or to allow clearance for a vise.
