    Husky Adjustable Height Work Bench Table - Shelf

    I know a few folks have these. Surprisingly useful. Mine changed my whole approach to an outfeed for my bandsaw and other things. In an effort to increase its usefulness I added a shallow shelf.




    I left it shallow as straddling a few things to get it into position was a feature I didn't want to lose.

    The real reason for the shelf was to make a portable home for my air compressor. I've had an air-plumbed shop before but I use air so little it was never as much use as it was effort to put in . I started just digging the compressor out and hauling it over the few times I needed it.

    I'm hoping that rolling it over when needed and having a place for a few nailer tools and accessories will be a good half way point between those two methods.

    I was cleaning up and realized I could cobble something together out of some scraps that were headed out the door.

    I always eyeball these when I'm in HD. I wish they offered the short version with the drawers, the 56" is a bit large for me.

    Clever use of some scrap plywood. I would have gone full depth and cursed myself the first time I needed to straddle something and started reaching for the sawzall.

    I got a white 46" one a month or so ago. Use it as outfeed on my table saw, and move it around when I need it elsewhere. It adjusts to several workbenches, my big bandsaw, drum sander, etc.

    I changed the wheels to get better ones with brakes that work. Got some from amazon. They are 3/8" stems, not metric, if anyone wants to get some.

    I plan to eventually put wheels on a platform of plywood, and bolt the table to it, then build a cabinet that will fit under the lowest table setting. This will normally leave me the top of the cabinet as well as the back side to store jigs and accessories. The drawers will be wide, with adjustable partitions. I figure I might be able to fit three useable drawers in the space. Undecided.

    PS: Aaron...They do make the 46" one with drawers. $40 extra, I almost bought that until I decided to do the above mods.

    Weird I was thinking about getting one over the summer but they were ex'd out and said unavailable. I thought maybe discontinued, but now I do see them listed as available so maybe they were very new and they just didn't have them yet. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I didn't get drawers, as mentioned, but I ordered it online and picked it up at the store a few days later. They don't stock too many short ones apparently.
