My workshop is a converted one car “carport” which was enclosed years ago. So you can imagine how small this is. I do not house my car or bike in it, so it is all workshop… a small workshop. Too make the most use of the space, I have everything on wheels to move around as needed.

This mobile workstation gives me four workstations that fit upon one mobile base. I can not take credit for this idea. I saw it years ago in some mag I picked up at Home Depot.

The base is a 24” kitchen cabinet someone was throwing away. I added a bottom piece of plywood and some wheels.

The underside of each top have two wood strips that fit into the cabinet top preventing it from moving once in place.

Drill Bit Sharpener:

Everything sits on L brackets when not in use and a small flat table top at a moments notice ready for use.

Great use of the space Harold!
Isn’t it always funny how we’re fighting for every inch of extra space?

You’ve probably just helped a bunch of other guys with the same problem.

Thanks Wood Wrecker. Just learned of another fellow LJ member, John Smith who also lives in Kissimmee.

Nice work, I use something similar for fitting the tops to a base. For the same reason, saves on space.
