My 6 in 1 Multi Power Tool – Work Bench:
I decided to build a multi power-tool bench 59X20 inches (1.5X 0.5 meters) which will fit into my storage room and hold simple hand tools that will allow me to build any woodworking project I want.
Made out of 2X4” and 2X2” for the body, plywood for the sides and an 3/4 MDF top laminated with Formica for better strength.
The tool bench holds 5 major tools, drill press, sander, jigsaw, circular saw, router with a lift device and 6th also is a workbench with a vise.
5 small drawers (one for each tool’s small accessories), under storage space, and 8 electrical sockets with wiring.
The bench sits on casters with stoppers so that it can easily roll into and out of the storage room. It has two attachable extensions for outfeed.
The set is completed with a mini cyclone dust collector bucket and a home vacuum.
Optional it has been design to hold a homemade Lathe which I design but did not build yet,
You will also noticed that there is an angle cut on the bench design, that was done so that it will allow me some space to pass through into my storage room even when the bench is inside it.
