This is a simple workbench on casters. There is nothing particularly special about it except for the fact that it will give me 8 badly needed drawers on the out feed side of my table saw and one badly needed door compartment. This is also next to my bandsaw and near my drill press. I hope that it will eliminate me from having to pile stuff on my table saw from time to time and give me a little more organization for my small shop. One picture is the old work bench and the other is the new. I put this work table on casters so that I could pull it away from the wall and occasionally clean up my scrap and sawdust. I like for everything in my shop to be on rollers. The four front casters have locks on them for stability. The cabinet is made from cabinet grade plywood and the drawers are made of maple. The top is a double thickness lamination of plywood with hardwood edges. The finish is just a couple of coats of polyurathane. In the middle opening you see my small air compressor in the floor. Right around the corner I plan on making a cart for my air compressor that will hold all of my nail and staple guns as well as all the nails ect. The cart will be sized to roll underneath the center opening.
