So I got tired of squatting on the floor to work on stuff, so I built a bunch of simple stands to hold tools and whatnot. This project was posted by Lockwatcher here:
and that looked like a pretty easy formula. I added a middle shelf, and knocked these out in a weekend. It’s basically 2×4s framing MDF held up by 2 2×4s put together. I added total lock casters because most of the things that sit on these stands want to move around. Thanks to Lockwatcher for the post!

Looks good to me but, seems like I keep re-building my shop stands, I’m just never satisfied I guess. Maybe I’m not the one to ask! I like your shop buddy…..mine won’t stay in the shop for more than about 10 minutes. Maybe I need better ventilation…
