DIY Simple Standing Workbench

We have our own small scale bike repair setup in our basement and finding a suitable workbench has been a bit of a task. Not only is the search for the perfect workbench been time consuming, but it's also giving a real ache in the pants (our wallets, get your mind out of the gutter). We can't begin to count the number of stores we've visited and maybe we need to entertain the idea of building one ourselves.

Randy Sarafan took matters into his own hands and built his own standing workbench. When you're working on a project it's sometimes easier to stand while you work. We all remember art class in high school and college &mdash stools were definitely optional!

Randy shared his steps with Instructables and the process seems fairly simple and painless. You'll certainly need to take a list to the hardware store, you'll need plywood, adjustable bench legs and locking casters with threaded rods to name a few! We really like the idea of putting casters on workbench legs because it allows for mobility.

The only thing we would add to this work bench is a hole on the top to allow for cords. We have a computer and speakers downstairs because we like listening to music while we work. We don't want cords all over the place, a great way to eliminate that from happening &mdash add an opening!

All of the instructions are available on Instructables.
