I needed a workbench for the garage but like any garage I feel I have limited space so I needed a multi-tasker. I decided the bench would have to be the height of my table saw so it could function as an out feed table. After showing off the initial plans it was recommended that I enclose it to store tools in. I read somewhere on the net that it is advisable to leave a lip all the way around as a clamping surface. This was a great idea.
So in the end I come away with a bench top of 2’x4’. I installed 3” double locking casters. The top is 3/4” MDF covered with 3/4” plywood. The top has a 3” overhang on three sides. The long back side is flush for two purposes. One so it would sit flush to the garage wall. The second is because I plan to build a second one and when I put them back to back I have 4’x6’ assembly table with 3” overhang all the way around. For now this is working out great.
