Made this table for my garage. It is pretty good in that it has wheels and the table swings shut. I can use it for a ton of storage and fold out the leafs when I need them. Works great with limited space.

Love this design. Where did you get the plans or did you come up with it on your own.

the beauty of this is in the simplicity. I think this is perfectly what I need to build. It is already added to my favorites. Thanks so much for posting this!

As I really don’t have an indoor shop, or even a garage, I have been looking for ways of creating an outdoor movable cabinet / work table. You have just jump started my ideas!!!

Great idea / design!

I did use a plan on the internet but can’t find it now. Steve I think I sent it to you, do you have it?

It is fairly simple, all made from hardwood plywood. Some keys that I learned.
- I would size the height of the bench to match the height of your table saw. It would double to be a great outfeed table.
- The legs are simply 3/4” steel pipe with a threaded connection secured to the underside of the table
-4’ piano hinges provide a very strong connection and the table is pretty stout.
- the casters are 4”.
- everything was bought at the Depot.
- It is important to provide the interior shelfs to provide the support.
-Took me about 2 weekends to build and about $200 in materials.

I get a ton of use out of it and am real happy with the final product. Works great in a limited size shop.

Thanks guys for the comments.

I had a table like this once too. It now has a solid 42×64 top on it. I got tired of fiddling with the legs to make the 8ft table flat each time, but it did work. Nice job, mine didn’t look that good, just some construction plywood and no finish.

At first I didn’t see the other swingout. That’s a lot of flat table area …and you can never have enough table space. I love the casters and the warm, rich color.
You can easily see where this would get plenty of use.
Great job.
Thanks for posting.

That’s the cart from the family handyman. I was thinking of building one myself a while back, but never got around to it. You did it up right!
