This is dedicated to all people like me who can't work in any other place than their own rooms. Working in our own rooms is fine but the problem is we don't have enough space. So I made a zero space occupying wall mounted workstation, that when unfolded gives a nice big 3 feet by 2 feet workspace.
By removing a few parts (the wall mount parts) a portable, stowable, suitcase like workstation & drawing board can also be done. The most important feature for any portable workstation is that the tools should be firmly held.
If the tools are just sorted in place, even a short travel to the work-site can create a mess. So I have used a strapping design so that the tools are firmly in place for safety in portability.
So, if you are looking for a way to make a workstation with these features - "safely" portable, stowable, versatile tool storage, limited space occupying and design support (drawing), keep on reading.

Step 1: The Design
The green part of the picture is the place where all the tools are stored. The wood colored part is the workspace. The triangular blue colored parts are the legs that support the workbench (for wall mounts only). They rest against the wall.
The small red colored parts are actually cut out from the blue ones. They make sure that the tools holder can be supported even without the blue part in position. The workbench is also the drawing board (this is why the blue-red separation is required).
The green cabinet can be folded on to the workbench. The blue and red parts are folded under the workbench and everything can be folded onto the wall.
Thus we get a zero space workstation that occupies virtually no space while when fully opened provides a work area of 6 sq. feet (3 ft * 2 ft).
I bought an entire plywood board and cut out 3 pieces of 3 feet by 2 1/2 feet panels at the wood center. I used 3/4 inch plywood for the entire workstation.
