This was patterned after another project I saw posted on here from Dennie of Tennessee. It was a fun project to complete. Took about a week. Sorry, I didn’t keep track of the cost as I reused some wood from another workbench. It is 3’ deep and 6’ 6” wide. It stands 37.5” from floor. Casters are from Harbour Freight and rated at 375 lbs each. All drawers are 24” deep and 22” wide. Drawers are made from 3/4” plywood with pine 1 by faces. I used 1/4” hardboard on top of two 3/4” sheets of plywood for the top. Two 48” and two 36” T channels are routed into the top for hold down clamps. It is extremely sturdy and mobile with the 4” casters that allow me to push it all around with little exertion. Now on to that list of projects that have been on hold!

Thanks! Yours looks great!!
