Borrowing some ideas from all the talent here ,put together a mobile work bench to replace the old one. since i dont have lots of space ,have to keep comeing up with space saver ideas.this project is build from dougles fir,hickory,wanut,oak,and some pine.basicly anything that was laying around.datos for the side strechers ,pocket hole joints,and lots of deck screws i like the star head driver they grab real nice.3/4 nuts glued in to bottom of legs with marine tex for leveling.1/2 black iron from depot mounted in the bottom of the legs with a flange screwed and glued on to the end of the pipe to mount the handle.the wheels are mounted to two peices of hickory sistered together and the pipe traveling thru and bolted w/1/4 bolts. the top is mdf two sheets caped off with masonite the project only cost around $100. because i had most of the lumber all said an done im satisfied with the project the table is rock solid .and also my table saw when i get that mobile should fit right underneith when up on wheels.

looks like it will work very well
Will you tell us how the wheels work? You mentioned a handle and I don’t see it.
thanks for the post

Looks like it will be very useful. I too have limited space and my mobile bench is quite handy
