This project is from the Wood Magazine #178 issue. I needed a place in my shop as I build it out to assemble things and I am not ready to build my “WorkBench”. I was using the top of my tablesaw to do this type of work, but it is hard on both the TS and the tools. When this plan came out it was the second project I completed in my shop after the Lumber Storage rack. It works very well, the casters are dual locking, it is assembled with Birch ply, Maple, Pine 2×4 (legs), and has a replaceable Hardboard top.
The only problem is since I have a 52in rails on my TS, the resulting table is very long and I have developed a slight sway in the center of the table which means that the edges are higher and the center is lower than the TS. This hasn’t caused any real issues as I have been able to shift the bench so that the high corner has not caused any problems. I have been thinking on how to resolve this delima and the only thing at this point is to use 1”x 1/4” aluminium to re-enforce the front board from behind.
I am open to suggestions…
The drawer boxes are for a future project to add some storage under the table of my TS supplies. These were given to me and are maple with dovetails.
