Cascaded workbenches to save space. Taller workbench serves as an out feed table. All casters are locking and they both move pretty easy together. Having 2 different height workbenches will be nice for different projects.

This is a great idea Loren. a real space saver. I hope you don’t mind me saying that I think it could be even better if there was some way to to make both tables the same height when you wanted to get a a really big work surface for glue-ups and such.

Great idea and execution…I am considering the same sort of set up for my shop…a re-purposed 2car garage. What about sleeving the legs with pins on the smaller table to lift it to the same height as the outer table? thoughts guys?

i love this too…also have 2 car garage that doubles as workspace…desperately needed this idea…thanks for posting…I like Stefang’s idea but I’m going to apply it to the upper table as it will not have a loaded down shelf and be much lighter to manipulate.

I like the idea of getting them level. I think sleeving the legs is a good idea. I will probably do that on the smaller workbench above the shelf. That workbench is going to be lighter, and has the support under the center of it if I would ever want to install a lift to handle raising and lowering.

You are a clever fella. That’s a great idea for someone who needs space like I do. :)

You could build a riser box for the smaller one that would have an an incline with a plateau at each corner to make up the height difference. I was thinking about the ramps for your car up so that you can more easily get under to change the oil. http://www.amazon.com/Petersen-Tru-Cut-Ultra-Ramps-6500-lb/dp/B0065O76CA/ref=sr_1_22?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1328818945&sr=1-22
Just make four of those out of wood and then attach them to a rectangluar support that matches the footprint of the smaller bench.

Brilliant Idea. Sets of stools are quite common. but this idea of workbenches rolling into one another is “out of box” idea.
