A Mobile Workbench for Small Workshops
This six foot long Mobile Workbench could be the answer to your dreams. Many of us occasionally have a need to move our workbench from place to place in the shop.
Some woodworkers are fortunate enough to have a large workshop with all the space they need. Then again, many woodworkers are like me and have to deal with less than ideal space. That's the reason for this versatile workbench. It can easily be moved into different positions in the shop as needed and then easily moved back to the home location. But that's not all this versatile workbench has to offer.
Woodwookers need to clamp a variety of different sizes and shapes of workpieces. The following images provide a sample of the many ways you can use the T-Track and various clamps to hold your work securely in place.
You can easily make the clamps you need from small pieces of scrap wood that you probably
lying around. Or you can purchase ready made Hold Down clamps from a variety of woodworking
suppliers. Just do a search for
t-track and clamps and you'll find lots products as
well as good ideas for using T-Track.
Being able to move your workbench around your shop and clamp an almost infinite variety of workpiece sizes and shapes is great. But the following features are also important.
Certainly those are all important. But can we build a really solid workbench with all those features that is also mobile? The answer is yes.
This workbench is made of 3/4" plywood panels that are screwed and glued to corner gussets for excellent strength and stability. Similar to the "unibody" construction of modern cars, this design is as strong and stable as traditional workbenches that use a wooden frame.
