Mobile Work Bench

I needed a workbench that would have enough surface space to work on and would be my height. I am a big guy a little over 6 feet so having a work surface at my work height would not be easy to find. I put the entire bench on heavy duty locking casters to keep it mobile. My "workshop" is my car garage that is used for parking my wife's car in at night so everything has to be stored on the outer edges. The workbench top and frame supports are completely out of 2x4's. The posts and storage area are from recycled pallet pieces.

  • Awesome work! This suits your need absolutely perfectly. Did you follow a plan or design your own?

    • Thank you Ryobi Nation. I had an idea for what I wanted and built everything based on the materials I had access to. I think everyone builds items based on their needs and space limitations. The design was simple and didn't require much forethought. Hopefully this work bench will help me get into those more complex builds I think about as I delve into the wonderful world of woodworking. The workbench and a handful of your great greenish/yellow tools. I have to say, i like this newer color of tools Ryobi has in lieu of the older navy blue and yellow lettering. You never lose your tools in your workshop!

  • Very nice...something I'm looking to build since also have a garage workshop that must be clean each night. What did you use the 2x6s for?

    • I had the 2 x6's for the shelf underneath. Just so i wouldn't have to put a brace across the middle and it would support my tools still in boxes.
