Build the Perfect Workbench
My "old door on sawhorses" setup in the workshop wasn't working for me anymore. The flat solid core door was great for assembling and clamping projects, and the width was perfect for our converted one car garage, but I needed more storage and a mobile base.
I wanted to keep the workbench free-floating in the middle of the shop so I can work on a project from all sides. It also needed to be on wheels so I could move it over to the table saw to serve as an outfeed table.
I decided to go with the Kreg workbench (affiliate link) for quick assembly and a solid steel framework. I could still use the door as the top, and add a shelf below for storage!
The feet are a separate piece from the legs, which allows you to adjust the height. My table saw is about 35 1/4" high, and an outfeed table should be slightly lower. With the casters attached, it's the perfect height!
I took about 8 inches off the end of the door so it would fit better on the frame.
Then I placed the workbench frame upside down on top of the door and screwed it in place with the screws that were included with the kit.
