I have been wanting to really get into woodworking for along time. So I finally decided it was time to make it happen. I have a small 2 car garage that already has to much stuff in it. I needed a good assembly, workbench but it had to be mobile. So here is the workbench I made this fall. It is 39”w x 75”l x 36” high. Extremely sturdy, heavy yet very mobile. I’ll roll it out to the middle of the drive, when the weather permitted. I also mounted my compressor on the bottom shelf, re-plumbed the tank drain with valve and added a retractable hose. The bench also has Rockler’s bench jack casters. It also has a 12 outlet strip on one side, pretty handy. So for it has been everything I have needed.

Well, I Have mixed feelings about the casters. Love the concept, and they work, but I think the should be a little bigger in diameter. The bench probably does weigh a 150# +, the casters are rated for 100 # each, but it does take a lot to lift the bench, you really have to put your weight into it. I have to actually use me hands to release them. But again, the behemoth is easy to roll around. I will probably use them again for smaller/lighter stuff.
