Project Information

My new Rolling Workbench.

My stationary work bench was just always running out of space to work on. So I decided to build myself a new bench that I could move around the shop. The Frame work is built of salvaged 4" x 2-1/2" pallet skids. The Drawer box is made from Plywood salvaged from a building remodel where my wife works. The Drawers are made from 3/8" Plywood with 3/4" facings. The top is made from Laminated plywood sheets to a thickness of 4-1/2" thick in the main working portion and 2-1/4 around 3 sides. The vise Stationary Jaw is 2-1/4 inches thick. The Movable jaw is 3" thick made from 2×8 material laminated to 3" thick. The Screws are Jorgenson Tail vise screws.
The table border is California Black Oak. I still have to drill for bench dogs and the hold fasts.

It looks really nice and sturdy, Jim. Roll around work surfaces and benches are always helpful in addition to the main bench. They make for a much more versatile shop, IMHO.
