we had a kitchen island in the house when we moved in. Wifey did not like it so I removed it and put some wheels on the bottom.

works great for tabletop tools and projects.

Sure everybody knows but old doors make great temporary work surfaces and you can use the hole for door knobs for electrical pass through. Two, two drawer file cabinets and a door make a decent desk. Saw horses work for a base too.

When you are done. You can lean the door on edge and out of the way.

Biggie,
I have one of those sitting outside my shop. I usually use it for sanding and spray painting. They do come in handy.

Solid core's better than hollow core. Raised panel, no so much.

I save one or two during demolition and use them as throw away work tables.

I have used those type barrels for rain barrels, on job sites to store water to clean paint brushes and drywall tools if the wells not in yet, as drywells for condinsate drains, as a sump pump pit, Cut the cover and lay it on it's side and you have a dog house.
