Why don’t you build a small cabinet of drawers, and put it under your work bench…All of my workbenches are heavy, and don’t have rollers or casters on them….but, I have 2 assembly tables that are on casters….maybe you could do something like that if you need to move it around your shop, or whatever…..

If you want to see my main workbench and assembly table w/caster, take a look at my woodshop pictures.

It might give you an idea of what you’re looking for and want to do for storage…...

In my shop all the small machine bases have been tossed, and the machines sit on cabinets full of drawers. They are the most efficient way to keep everything right at your fingertips, and make all your shop space do double duty. Here are three of my favorite benches, but only one is on wheels. The 18 drawer unit would probably hold a good part of what most woodworkers have in their shops.

Have you considered the thought of a tool tower, which can be moved around the shop. This would take up less floor space and yet give you the accessibility of your tools where you need them. A 16”x 16”x 60” tower would give you a lot of storage and portability.
