Work bench

I have seen a few benches that incorporate a way to use and store several pieces of equipment in a smaller area.
I designed this particular bench to free up space and yet give me a good work area for what ever project I may be working on.
So far I have a permanent place for the table saw, a section that I can remove for both the miter saw and for the router.
I plan on adding the planer to the bench and will locate that where the router table can be placed.
I still have a little work to do but thought I would use it to see what other options I may want to add.
It is nice to have a large work area all at the same level and also a place to put the equipment when not in use.
This bench is about 6 feet long and 3 feet wide and is on casters so I can wheel it around the shop or outside if I want.

Woods: plywood

Tools: miter saw

Great design, pretty much what I was looking to build.

I have made one, best build ever! This looks good and sturdy. One suggestion if you ever plan on changing the top, leave a lip, makes it easier to clamp stuff.

Now there’s a problem solved…I’ve been throwing it around in my head about a table for my TTS…The bottom one is perfect…Cheers…

and by the way I can’t recall seeing any Makita tools in any of the pics…

Nice organizations as a all in one

Great design! I used one like this for years before building the hybrid Roubo. How is the height for you? It’s very important to make a bench tailored to you, it the most used tool we woodworkers use. Great job.

Tony. A great idea about a place to clamp. That will be an easy add. I will also be adding some drawers and door along with a power strip, air connections and dust collector connections. I made the height the same as my other bench that I work at all of the time. So far it seems good.
I have a couple of good projects to do as soon as I get my boat done.
Thanks for the comments.

I made one out of some scrap wood left over from projects. Not as nice or as big as yours though. Looking to build a bigger one like you did. Great job!!!

That is real nice Sheri.
I find it surprising how much space I opened up.
I may have to buy something to fill it.

Great idea. I may use this in my new shop as an out feed table for my saw as well, and I like the storage.
