Plans for a workbench on wheels


Good morning everyone,
I've been scouring the internet looking for plans to build a magnificent workbench to include a routing table, table saw, power strip and drawers and cabinets for my woodworking tools and my pancake compressor. Would also like it to have downdraft and filtration. I have seen a bunch that I really like on sites like lumberjock but none include plans. Is there any place on this site that I can find something like that. I'm not a beginner. I can build anything... just that my space has been cut in half when we moved so this thing has to be on wheels to work in the driveway. Thanks in advance!!

You really should not need plans for something like this.You need to build it to suit your needs and the tools you own.Chances are even with plans you would have to modify them quite a bit for your tools.Download Sketchup and draw something up.

Trying to save time. As an engineer, if I start designing and sketching up myself, it will end up being able to launch hellfire missiles and cook my breakfast. See what I'm getting at...

I understand completely.I just don't think any you will find will suit your needs without a lot of modification.A rocket launcher could be cool.Just keep it away from the table saw blade.

You could get the miter saw to cut the crust off of your bread automatically! Think about all of the mashed potatoes you could make with various router bits!
Ever peeled a banana with a table saw? Well, you can now and it does it for you!

What ever you do don't skimp on the casters and buy casters with a good lock.Places like Grainger or McMaster-Carr will have what you need if you can't source them locally.
