just a little 8 ft work bench i thru togeather took about 3 months. SOME OLD PINE BOARDS I HAD === DIDN’T EVEN TAKE OFF THE BARK.
has an attachable vise that mounts on the rt side and is stored in the cabinet below. that is a whole story in it’s self
for more pictures let me know. by the way i built it on a motorcycle lift THAT WAS A GOD SENT. FOR THE REST OF THE STORY =
those wheels are on the back of the vice to roll it back into it’s stall in the bottom shelf. that other mecanizum is a sliding door latch for a barn === hooked to a chain that holds it tight to the top of the bench. it has 2 hooks on the front .
note the high speed knob on the handle. it is not a quick release vice so to compesate i made this. last picture ====to try to maintain the integrety of the pine top i used nylon washers on the screws place in the center of a 1’’ slot on the angle iron that is fastened to the leg assembly

For something you just “threw together” I’d say it turned out quite well.

Nicely done. I like the live edge back apron. Looks to be some fine joinery as well.

I know this is a two-year old project, but…

I’ve been looking for ideas for a rolling work station and came across yours and I like it. However, there is a lot more going on here that your pictures do not explain. Specifically, the rolling vise. You just gotta show me more about how this works and why you did it.

I like the idea of vise that detaches easily, but I am unable to figure out where the vise goes on your bench.

I may not understand what your did, but I’m sure it’s awesome.

My compliments.

Have your say...
