My new Rolling Workbench.

My stationary work bench was just always running out of space to work on. So I decided to build myself a new bench that I could move around the shop. The Frame work is built of salvaged 4” x 2-1/2” pallet skids. The Drawer box is made from Plywood salvaged from a building remodel where my wife works. The Drawers are made from 3/8” Plywood with 3/4” facings. The top is made from Laminated plywood sheets to a thickness of 4-1/2” thick in the main working portion and 2-1/4 around 3 sides. The vise Stationary Jaw is 2-1/4 inches thick. The Movable jaw is 3” thick made from 2×8 material laminated to 3” thick. The Screws are Jorgenson Tail vise screws.
The table border is California Black Oak. I still have to drill for bench dogs and the hold fasts.

Very cool. I’ve never seen a tapered top like that before.

It looks really nice and sturdy, Jim. Roll around work surfaces and benches are always helpful in addition to the main bench. They make for a much more versatile shop, IMHO.
