Whether you're contending with a snug workshop, limited vehicle space, or the specific demands of smaller-scale projects, the ShortCut™ bench from Dash-Board® emerges as the ideal solution.

Let's get into the unique features of the ShortCut™ and how it encapsulates all the hallmark style, capability, and versatility of the original Dash-Board® into a more compact and easily transportable package.

Compact Yet Mighty: The ShortCut™ Bench

Designed for Convenience:

The ShortCut™ bench is crafted with the modern craftsman in mind. Its dimensions – 46.75” long X 24.5” wide X 35.5” tall and weighing just 45lbs – make it perfectly suited for environments where space is at a premium and mobility is essential.

Despite its smaller size, the ShortCut™ maintains the same depth and height as the original Dash-Board®, ensuring you don't compromise on workspace quality.

Connectivity without Limits:

Unique to the ShortCut™ is its ability to connect side-by-side and end-to-end with other benches, including the original Dash-Board®, without compromising the clamp tracks. This modularity allows users to tailor their workspace to the scale of their projects, ensuring flexibility and efficiency remain paramount.

Unparalleled Versatility and Strength

Accepts Full Range of Accessories:

The ShortCut™ is compatible with all the same accessories as its larger counterpart, ensuring users have access to the full spectrum of Dash-Board®'s innovative tools.

From the Pro Accessories Bundle to the Platinum Accessories Bundle, and everything in between, the ShortCut™ can be customized to meet the specific needs of any project, making it as capable as any full-sized bench.

Dash-Board® Specs: A Foundation of Quality

Solid, Stable, and Strong:

The Dash-Board® sets the standard for what a workbench should be – a solid foundation for your workspace. Weighing approximately 60 lbs and measuring 92.56” x 24.41” x 35.5”, it provides more work surface than its closest competitors.

Designed for both stability and strength, the Dash-Board® is the ideal starting point for any project, capable of supporting up to 49” crosscuts and rips over 90" with the right configuration of accessories.

Precision-Made for Track Saw Compatibility:

Both the Dash-Board® and ShortCut™ feature slotted holes designed specifically to accommodate Festool-type guide rails (along with Makita, Powertec, Triton, etc.), catering to the majority of customers using track saws.

This thoughtful design decision underscores our commitment to providing a workbench that meets the detailed needs of modern craftsmen.

Handcrafted Quality

Small Production Runs, Big Impact:

Our benches are made in small production runs, ensuring each unit receives the attention to detail and quality control it deserves. Assembled and tested by hand, the Dash-Board® and ShortCut™ represent the pinnacle of workbench design – blending craftsmanship, innovation, and practicality.

Redefining the Light Workbench

The ShortCut™ by Dash-Board® redefines what a light workbench can be – compact, portable, yet incredibly robust and versatile. It's designed for those who need a reliable work surface that moves with them, adapts to their evolving project needs, and stands the test of time.

Whether you’re in a cramped city workshop or moving between job sites, the ShortCut™ ensures your workspace is never a limitation but a catalyst for creativity and productivity.
