Mobile workbench

My newly modified work bench, is now mobile,  @Nikki7. as promised please see images of my mobile work bench, before and after shots. I had to take apart my existing work bench and build a frame to take the new wheels, I also had to reduce the height of the bench, cupboards and re do some of the drawers, I added a new ash timber bench top from Bunnings.

Re: Mobile Work bench

What a beauty, @JoeAzza! That would have to be every woodworker's dream workbench.

 

What are the holes in the timber to the left of the vice? Are they for some type of holdfast clamping jig? I'd also be interested to know if you've ever used bench dogs or dowels and what your opinion of them is.

 

Many thanks for sharing your upgrades to the workbench. I trust having it mobile is a game-changer.

 

Well done.

 

Mitchell

Re: Mobile Work bench

Thank you .@MitchellMc

the holes left of the vice are for a peg to support long pieces of timber when cutting or planing. I can also place clamp in the hole if required, I haven’t used hold fast dogs, hovever I have used dowels as a stop for planing in the past. I want to drill  a hole on top of the vice and the bench top in the near future for clamping wide boards by using the vice as a clamp,

Re: Mobile Work bench

Hello @JoeAzza 

 

That is an excellent modification! So much versatile now that it is mobile. You can have oversized sheets and this table will easily handle it. Fantastic build as always. I'm sure it's an idea myself and others will remember when building a work bench.

 

Cheers

Hi Red

.@redracer01

The top has 3 coats of Bondall Monocel satin water based clear wood varnish. The draws have one coat, I ran out, so off to Bunnings for more paint.

Re: Mobile workbench

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @giveitatry1. It's wonderful that you've joined us, and many thanks for jumping into the conversation.

 

Let me mention @JoeAzza for you, so he's alerted to your kind comment about the project. 

 

If you'd like the industrial look of this timber workbench in your kitchen, perhaps you might also like to check out @Karlster69's Tool trolley come kitchen island. Either of these projects would certainly allow you to have all your cooking utensils at arms reach.

 

We look forward to hearing all about your projects and plans around the house and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or have something to share. I trust you'll find tonnes of inspiration within the community as our amazingly creative members post their projects here all the time.
