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 in feed side of my table saw and one badly needed door compartment. This is also next to my joiner and lathe. The lathe is just to the left. I hope that it will eliminate me from having to pile stuff on my table saw and other machines 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 a small cart with my router table. Right around the corner I plan on making a new cart for my router table and it will hold all of my routers, router bits and adjusting tools to replace this one.
