Build your own DIY folding workbench for your garage in just one day! This beginner tutorial and woodworking plan uses a solid core door and inexpensive lumber to make a wall mounted folding table for under $100, perfect for woodworking and other DIY projects.

What makes this DIY wall mounted folding table affordable and easy

The secret to this fast and easy wall mounted folding table is that I used a solid core wood door instead of plywood for the tabletop.

You can adjust the height to your ideal standing desk height, as well as adjusting the bench top width and depth by using a 78″ or 84″ solid core door.
