My newly modified workbench is now mobile. I had to take apart my existing workbench and build a frame so I could install wheels.
I also had to reduce the height of the bench, cupboards and re-do some of the drawers, and I added a new ash timber benchtop from Bunnings.
The holes on the back of the workbench are for pegs to support long pieces of timber when cutting or planing. I can also place a clamp in the hole if required. I want to drill a hole on top of the vice and the benchtop in the near future for clamping wide boards by using the vice as a clamp.
