How to say "I will work on Saturday instead of working on Tuesday" in a more natural fashion?
I guess the verb will be constructed like "work or make" + "out or off or ?", but what is the exact construction?

No particular pair of daynames occurs often enough in OP's context for me to back this up with usage counts from Google Books, but in my experience native speakers are more likely to say...
"I'll do Saturday instead of Tuesday".
Having said that, there's nothing at all wrong with work (or come in, etc., in some contexts).
