Ever since I moved the shop into the basement all I had for a work bench was a 2 and 4×4 structure with a sheet of 1/2” plywood as a top. I was fooling around with the idea of making a new one for a few months and once I had the idea pretty refined in my head I put pen to paper, bought some material and here it is. It is simply two cabinets, 6 casters and one table top. The cabinets are made from 3/4” MDF and the doors are 3/4” pine and 1/4” melamine. The peg board on the back was a last minute decision; I wanted the bench to be moveable around the shop so the peg board is attached to the wall and not the bench. It really is great, it comes out for assembly and tucks right back into the wall when I don’t need access from all four sides at once. It has great stowage underneath as well, down the road I am thinking about putting some sliders on the shelves to make getting heavier power tools an easier task.
