Two mobile workbenches, by Jochem

To be able to work comfortably in my workshop, I built two sturdy workbenches with a base which you can turn up so that their feet are on the ground. There is also room for the entire stock of screws and bolts, it has a large vice and I can store my compressor in it.

How I made this project

To start, I drew the whole thing in Fusion 360, so I knew exactly which parts I would need. The legs of the workbenches consist of composite parts of birch plywood. These are always glued together with 3 layers and secured with some small nails. When assembling you already have space to put the different parts together. It is useful to use a small strip for this (if you can order extra, it will be exactly the same width). A recess has been made in the legs into which the cabinet falls. These are 6 planks that are glued and screwed together. There is a double one in the middle for extra strength. The wheels sit on a shelf that is exactly the same size as the bottom shelf of the cabinet, which also falls into a recess in the legs and is pushed down by a scissor jack. The jack can be operated through a hole in the bottom beam. This can be done with the crank, but my jacks also fit a socket wrench cap, which you can place in the cordless drill.
