Introduction: Mobile Saw/Work Table

Picture of Mobile Saw/Work Table

I built a relatively small work table that can be easily moved around my garage. This was intially done because I was given an used compound miter saw, and just using it on the ground wasn't very easy. It has shelving for storage and on the top has a vice as well as the saw.

Step 1: Cut Your Lumber & Build Shelves

I used 2x3" Studs for the shelve frames and 2x4" studs for the uprights/legs. I wanted the shelves to be 2'x3' so I cut 6 lengths of 21" and 6 Lengths of 36". I then butt jointed them and screwed them together as shown in the picture. Final dimensions of 24"x36". On top of that I attached by plywood to the completed frame with screws. I used scrap pieces of plywood that I was able to get my hands on, any kind should work.

Step 2: Add Your Legs/uprights

I Then added my uprights/legs to the shelves. To do this I cut the 2x4s into 8, 30" lengths. I then marked lines on each of the uprights at the level of the middle shelf. I then attached the Shelves the the uprights/legs at each corner. Matching the bottom of the shelf to the bottom of the leg and the top shelf at the top of the 2x3.

Step 3: Add the Wheels

The final step I completed was adding some old caster wheels I had to the bottom. I have since added a compound miter saw and a vice as well as spots to hang other tools. But it is easy to customize into anything you want.

Aprox 33 or so inches off the ground when you account for the casters.

Simple project for a handy bench. I'm pressed for storage and work space, this table is simple to make. I put wheels on it from an old moving dolly. Works great.

Nice! The casters are a great idea!
