This simple workstand is both stable and mobile. It provides a great surface for cutting, routing, sanding, assembly etc. You can roll it around your workspace by simply tipping one end a few degrees to engage the wheels. In the resting position, the wheels are disengaged and this is the key to its stability. There are no obstructions on the underside of the worktop which allows for efficient clamping. These mobile workstands work very well in pairs, so after you finish your first one, you may want to build another!
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for an all-in-one bench top table saw and router table station. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.
To load a sheet of plywood onto the table, tip the table onto a pair of scrap 2 x 4 spacers, lift the plywood onto the spacers and against the table, and lift the plywood and the table together. You will find that gravity does most of the work.
Here is a simple weekend project: My workshop needed a sturdy, flat work surface that I could access from all sides without a wall in my way, so I built the rock-solid workbench pictured here.
Workbench for a small space. A fold-out work table, a roll out table saw stand, a miter box table and lots of storageācabinets, drawers, pegboard and shelves. All inexpensive and easy to build. Ideal for a garage or other limited shop space.
This carpenter bench doubles as a storage bench and provides more stability than saw horses for your job. A cut list is provided to help you build your own workbench with space for tool storage as well.
Make more room for tools and carpentry projects with space-saving workbenches that set up or come apart in seconds. Made from recycled doors and other readily available materials, all these designs are both inexpensive and easy to build.
The Garage Workbench Plans are a 48 page detailed plan in a 600 KB PDF file. The plans come complete with a materials list, easy to follow parts drawings, and instructions. Detailed drawings and instructions for the clamping system are also included.
This workbench is low on purpose for a workshop with low ceilings like a shed. Follow along and build your own. Of course you could extend the legs to any height that is comfortable for you.
