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.


Kreg Universal Bench system Features:

2 Sizes of Adjustable-Height Legs:

  • 29"-35" Tall
  • 15¼"-21¼" Tall
  • Made from 12-gauge (1/8"-thick) steel
  • Both sizes feature 6” of height adjustment with no stops or presets, letting you set the exact height you need
  • Built-In leg levelers accommodate uneven or sloping floors
  • Predrilled mounting holes for rails, other accessories
  • Accept optional 3” dual-locking casters for easy mobility


5 Rail lengths:

  • Rails are available in 14", 20", 28", 44", & 64" lengths
  • Rails combine to make 15 bench sizes (14"x14" to 64"x64")
  • Made from 14-gauge steel
  • Predrilled holes for mounting bench top and shelves


Other Features:

  • Premium finish in Kreg Blue looks great and lasts
  • High-quality hardware included for simple, solid assembly

You should be able to cut the legs down if you'd like.

The "Universal" in Universal Bench comes from the fact that you can build multiple widths and depths and use the bench for many different purposes. There are two height ranges based on the legs, so the height isn't infinitely variable between the lowest setting (15 1/4") and the highest (35"). The shorter legs are adjustable from 15 1/4" to 21 1/4", and the taller legs are adjustable from 29" to 35".

When designing the bench we wanted to accommodate a range of low heights like you'd use for an assembly table, as well as a range of taller heights, like you'd use for a bench. That's why we developed two different leg sets, each with an adjustment range built in. A single leg design that would adjust from 15" to 35"  would be weaker and would pose challenges for attaching the upper and lower rails solidly. This does mean there's a gap between the two height ranges.


It just seems there is a HUGE gap between the two heights. In fact- the size of the gap is greater than the range of adjustability of each leg set.

Either way- I bought it and when it gets here I'm sure I'll be happy as a clam when I get it assembled and chop the top 4.25" off the legs!
