So I came across this in Shopnotes Magazine a while back and it has been on my to do list for too long. Well I can finally cross it off. I even made a video of the build if your interested: https://youtu.be/8oNZTY1kpbc
It’s made from a single sheet of plywood and a couple 2×4’s and can be made in a single weekend. Next I plan on making some accessories for it like some work surfaces, tool stands, and some work supports.

It looks like a good workable solution or a portable KD work support.

Yours looks better than the one I made. Good job. I didn’t get good clean cuts where the pieces fit together. I had to beat them apart. I finally gave up and threw it away.

I do like the idea of it being two working heights. And it is fairly stable when put together.

that is on my list for the coming weekend. Thought I would get it done this weekend, but no such luck. I need something to set my planer and router table on. May have to adjust the height a bit from the plans.

Just so you know, the legs can be set two ways – one for a lower height, and the other way for a higher working surface.
