Haha just past the workbench I removed the shelving so there’s almost 800mm to open the door. Shed cleaned out, culled anything I haven’t touched in 3 years, modified workbench and modified shelves just to get the car in there!!!

Been doing odds and ends around the house and miss my workbench, and I don't want to get the grinder out near Fritz the Merc so I decided to build a mobile bench. With ideas from here, random screws/timber from the shed, some wheelie bin wheels donated to me and some of "the straightest, least bent I could find" timber from Bunnings I whipped this up last night.

It's 1200x600 solid as a rock and only needs to be lifted about 70mm to move it around. I moved the legs inwards 150mm at the 'handle' end so it's just like a wheelbarrow.







Had some offcuts so I made a bin holder too.



Might screw a powerboard to it as well to save me beding down and cutting on milk crates...
