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.

There never seems to be enough work surfaces in my shop. Good job.
My last mobile bench was similar but because table saw height is often to high for other work (or not high enough) I made it shorter and created a support system for the top that allows me to raise and lower it as needed. Also I have an open 6” space under the top for putting the tools I’m using at the time out of the way. On the ends between the supports I put in shallow open shelves to hold glue bottles and other small items.

Great bench. I built one a wheels a well, but much taller. I was making allot of hand router signs at that time and go tired of bending over so much on my regular benches.
