How to Make a Paper Workbench Cover

April 25, 2017

Description:

If you’re anything like me, my workbenches are constantly getting covered in paint, stain and dried up wood glue. I knew there had to be some sort of way to prevent this from happening though. After doing a little bit of research, I came across a rosin paper workbench cover dispenser. All I had to do was purchase a roll of rosin paper and figure out some way to mount it to my workbench. I used a 3/4″ thick, 2’x4′ sheet of scrap plywood to build 2 dispensers (One for each side of my miter saw station). The rosin paper I purchased is about 167′ long and about 3′ wide, but I had to cut a little over a foot off of one side so it would fit the width of my workbench.  I used a 5/8″ threaded rod to hold the roll onto the wooden portion of the dispenser and a nut/washer on each end to keep it from sliding off the sides. Now I’m able to cover up my workbenches with a quick pull from the dispenser. Once the sheet of paper is covered in glue or paint, I simply cut off the old paper and roll out a fresh piece!
