DIY Portable "Mobile Workbench" For Your Camper (Or Tiny House/Apartment) – Part 1

– Dwelling Off The Grid In A DIY Truck Camper

Would you discover it helpful to have a sturdy space-saving transportable work bench you possibly can simply stow away and pull out for initiatives?

You’ll be able to guess I completely do! I used to be on the lookout for a simple option to do my initiatives on the street, once I got here throughout the Sta-bull Ta-bull mission on 911Kisses.internet. To say it was precisely what I used to be on the lookout for is a little bit of an understatement. As you will see within the video, I rushed so rapidly to get the components I wanted that I made numerous brief cuts that proved, let’s consider, “very instructional.”

Basically the Cell Workbench is a transportable “saw-horse and vise” type workbench (ideally a Black & Decker Workmate 125) with a detachable work floor, fold-up peg board wall to maintain your instruments handy-but-out-of-the-way, and a drawer to retailer any instruments that you simply want to stick with the work bench.

Feeling like I wanted a usable workbench “like, yesterday”, I used to be a bit dismayed to find that the Workmate 125 is not offered in shops, though it is simply out there by way of Amazon or Ebay for $30 with free transport. Not wanting to attend for it to reach, I checked my native Harbor Freight and picked up an affordable imitation on sale for simply $16.99. Upon assembling it, I rapidly discovered a couple of explanation why I ought to simply order the Black & Decker and return a budget U.S. Normal to Harbor Freight. However since I had a zillion initiatives on my agenda, I made a decision to simply, as they are saying, “make it work!”

Understanding that I might ultimately swap it out for the Workmate, I wished a option to make a less-than-permanent set up, resulting in what’s develop into an fascinating variation in fairly a couple of respects. Among the adjustments I made as what I take into account to be all-around small enhancements. However the greatest change was the “versatile” manner I hooked up the highest to the bench, in order that you may probably use it with totally different units of legs, in the event you wished to improve later or simply rotate between totally different workbenches.
