This mobile work bench was built because of the limited space I had to work with. I should be able to wheel this outside weather permitting and still have the ability to work indoors. It’s in a single care garage with about 3/4’s available for a work space. It’s probably best described as a work in progress but overall I am pleased with what I was able to acheive. Most tools can be removed to provide a clear work space for cutting larger pieces and then commencing assembly. Limited space creates a situation where you have to plan…plan…and plan. There is a basic dust collection that is activated with a current sensor draw switch. There are so many things that can be added and modify as one starts using it more. Anyway, thanks for allowing me to share.

Is that a Harbor Freight router table and fence? I have the same one, and I actually like it a lot. Not the fence though. I found it wasn’t 90 to the table, so I built a new one. I love the router though. The table needed some bracing to get it flatter. How did you get around the lack of an insert plate, and the thickness of the table? I ended up buying a router bit extension, which works really well, and it has the added convenience of being tightened/loosened with an Allen wrench.

Also, how do you raise/lower the router? If you put a long threaded rod into where there’s a shorter rod, and slip a piece of shorter pipe over that with a wing-nut and washer at the bottom, it makes a nice router lift.
