How to Improve the Performance of a Fold down Workbench


Fold Down Workbench – Casting about something stronger than a piece of plywood and some adjustable clamps, I find there are several folding work tables on the market from manufacturers such as Word, Black, and Decker, and sold in places like Home Depot, Lowes and Harbor Freight.
