Make an Easy 2x4 Workbench

I designed this Easy 2x4 Workbench to organize my two new Ridgid 12 WD1280 gallon shop-vacs and six Harbor Freight hardware organizers.  It's a simple design that can be made with just 2x4s and plywood.  Watch my video then click here to get the plans!


This workbench is mobile and great for a small shop.  It can be customized to organize a variety of tools and storage bins.

The six Harbor Freight Hardware Storage Bins sit on runners.  I could probably fit another bin in there if I tightened up the space a little.

I used 3" casters from Harbor Freight that have an overall height of 3.75".  Keep in mind that using different size casters will change the overall height of the workbench.  I recommend casters with brakes to keep the workbench from moving.  Click here for a similar set of casters with 4" overall height on Amazon.

If you would like to build one too, click here to get the plans!  The plans include a materials list, measured drawings, cutting layouts, 18 photos, and 8 simple step-by-step assembly instructions.  I did my best to make it easy to build this project in one weekend.  It's a very sturdy bench and I plan to make more for my shop.
