« Part 5: Making it Mobile (but Stable) Part 6 of Mobile Torsion Box Workbench series Part 7: Final Thoughts »

The following table summarizes the project costs in different categories in U.S. Dollars (full-resolution image).

I didn’t include sales taxes, shipping costs, or cost of the screws and other supplies.

The cost of the basic bench is not too bad. Mobility (lateral, not just upward) has its costs. The Veritas products are definitely splurges. (But I had to have something to put on my Christmas list…)

Nice breakdown of your costs incurred. This is a big help, to those of us, trying to wrap their mind around material choices and budgetary constaints!!!

You are certifiably OCD, a perfectionist or anal retentive!!! NONE of which are a bad thing! Lol.
I tease because, you engineered and analyzed your work bench build as I would like to!!!

Now go make saw dust, projects and some dings in that marvelous bench!!!

Ha! :-) You made my wife laugh. For the record, I don’t track my costs that carefully. I just tossed all the receipts in a drawer and figured I’d list the actual amounts while I was writing the blog. I didn’t know the exact total cost myself until yesterday.
