This is an idea I have been working on for an assembly/work bench. I posted an earlier blog to see if I could get some ideas and feed back. This is the current status.
The overall design can be flexible in size and I have left the storage area under the top open for now but will add drawers, shelves, and cupboard doors in the final construction. The open shelves on the ends may be replaced with racks for small clamp storage but I used the small shelves on another work bench and found it handy for storing glue bottles and such. The cam action locks on the adjustable top are still a working idea. I don’t know whether I will build my own or look for some commercial ones. Rockwell has some that I may try; or I may just go with large screw knobs. Does anyone know of any sources for cam clamps or a similar and better idea?
The caster wheels are just symbolic representations as I did not want to go to the effort of drawing fancier ones that swivel and lock. I’m still working on my Sketchup skills and consider it a really steep learning curve.
I have put three views in here. The entire work bench, the top only, and a “wire” line view.
Before I start construction I will add all the detail dimensions for the components.
Any critiques or suggestions would be appreciated. I will most like start working on it next month.
