Design a Woodworking Workbench in Fusion 360

While we wrap up our Roubo-inspired workbench build, I thought I'd make a tutorial showing how we designed this fully parameter workbench in Fusion 360. By using custom parameters for values such as the overall bench height, top length, top thickness, leg width, etc., the workbench can be easily modified even after it is fully modeled. The tutorial also covers how 2D "Drawings" (layouts) can be created in Fusion 360 from the completed model to create a set of plans. These plans can also be easily updated as changes are made to the custom parameters or 3D model.
