I was using a flimsy card table as extra workspace in my shop when I decided to build this guy. It can tuck up into the wall when it isn’t needed, but then quickly fold down when it is. It rests slightly over 2.5’ high, is 3.5’ long and 2.5’ wide. I put on that front stop block so it will stop the legs in the same position every time. I could’ve made a better locking system, but I thought using two scrap pieces was just kinda fun. ; )
It only took a few hours to put together and $4 in 2×4s. I cut the top from a piece of 3/4” wood I found in my grandfather’s shop after he past away because I liked the idea of having something of his built into my shop. I know it’s a little nice for a workbench, but it’s sentimental.
I have full instructions on how I built it posted on my blog here. Check it out if you need one for your shop.
