Workbench on wheels with drawers and cupboards

A portable workbench with loads of storage space for tools and materials.





The project


I made this workbench build up as I went along, without any plans. The workbench measures 885mm high, 2285mm wide and has a depth of 870mm.


I used pocket holes to join the horizontal supports to the vertical posts in the frame. I mostly use the Kreg K5 Dowel Jointing System Pocket Hole Jig and find it easy to use and very durable.




I built cupboards in the workbench, but I will also build overhead cupboards and mount them to the wall for extra storage.

More workbench projects


Workshop member JoeAzza took apart his existing workbench to build a frame that would accommodate wheels and added a beautiful Ash timber benchtop from Bunnings.




Workshop member Hazel built her table saw into this portable workbench and used reclaimed timber from a tenpin bowling lane for an extra sturdy top.




In need of more tool storage and a bigger work area, Workshop member Rodney designed this custom workbench with loads of built-in tool storage.
