This, all in one workbench, worktable and toolbox is born out of necessity, to drive environment friendly to the local Repair Café. As repairer of small electro/electronic devices I went by car, because of the toolbox, workmate, etc. The idea came by combining bike and workshop. The all in one concept was growing gradualy. After the first sketches I couldn't wait to see this 'workshop' on the luggage carrier of my bike. The 5 minutes video gives an impression of 'the making off' this prototype. With this step by step guide I hope many of you will be inspired to make one for yourself.
With most of the size's of the cabinet and also from the drawer and tilt tray, it is more easy to calculate the plywood boards. I was using one quarter 8x4 foot multiplex 1.5 cm - 0.6inch thick board. Also two 4x2 foot 0.5cm - 0.2inch triplex board. For the frame you need also two laths of 210cm - 82.6inch lenght. The workbench top is pinewood of 1.8cm - 0.7inch thick. The size is 40cm x 100cm or 15.7inch x 40inch. You have to cut this through the middle. The piano hinge comes on the 50 cm side. The new (open)size is 50cm x80cm.
