Home Depot has an early Black Friday 2023 deal on the Dewalt folding workbench, model DWST11556.
This is a spectacular portable workbench. I bought mine soon after Dewalt launched it – during a sale like this one – and have had zero regrets over the years. It’s still going strong.
I first saw the deal in-store, and they had sold through all but one unit in the display. The Dewalt workbench tends to sell quickly every year.
Surprising, Home Depot is also selling these online with free shipping in addition to in-store pickup. The free shipping part isn’t typical – due to the workbench’s size, it’s usually an in-store-only deal.
The top work surface features slots and an array of dog holes.
It’s compatible with a wide range of bar clamps and other types of clamps. It does not come with any tools or clamps – you’ll have to supply your own.
I find both the cross slots and dog holes to be useful. I’ve used mine as a general work surface, and also for clamping in a similar manner as shown in the product photos.
A long and narrow channel serves as a small parts tray.
And when the project is done, the legs fold back up for easy transport and storage.
I’ve got mine stored under a heavy duty rack near the garage door. Before that, I stored it in other places, including between two tool cabinets.
The top work surface measures approximately 33″ long x 24″ wide. Dewalt says the workbench can support up to 1000 pounds.
If you’re on the fence, buy it and think things over afterwards, or at least keep a close eye on the online inventory numbers, as Home Depot stores tend to sell through them quickly.
The workbench was the same price for Black Friday last year.
