build June 2014

This is the second folding work bench I have made this was made out of a 4×8x3/4 sheet of ply wood oak top the rest is pine pallet wood the draw bottoms are made out of hard board i bought at Habitat for humanity restore it was used the two side panels under the table are stained hard board the rest is stained in golden oak with a poly acrylic semi gloss finish its folded its 40in by 38 by 34 tall open its 38 by 84 by 34 tall its on 4 rolling lockable casters the hinges are all used door hinges draw pulls from old cabinets The draw pull all the way through from either side so you can pull them out 3/4 of the way so no lost items at back of the draws

New bought

top
casters
finish
stain
screws
glue

everything ells reclaimed,reused or recycled

-- If someone threw it out i want it if someone calls it trash I will do my best to use it and when I am done i hope someone likes it if they dont I dont care because I made it

That looks like something I should build.

When you do not have dedicated space for a workshop, a compact workbench like this one is just the ticket.

Nice work. I work out of a very small 10’x10’ shed- I can relate to the constant need for compactness. Go Go Gadget Workshop!
