So the UMWW is pretty well completed and I’ve been using it for a few weeks now. I’m very pleased with it and I’ll submit some posts to cover the construction.
First I built the rolling platform torsion box. The 2×4s are acting as clamps while the glue sets up.
The corners were cut away to reduce the height and reinforced with 2×8s to carry the wheel loads.
The finished rolling platform:
The Work surface torsion box was built using the rolling platform as a work surface.
And the finished work surface:
Then the casters and floor locks were added. Later I added a 1/2” pad under the casters to give the floor locks more clearance on the uneven driveway. I simply place a 1/2” pad on the concrete when I use the stops to support the workbench.
The completed rolling platform:
Next, the cabinets.
