Roll Away Workbench Center with Wall Storage

Cooks Need Kitchens, Woodworkers need Workbenches

I always compare a workshop to a kitchen – would you cook dinner if you knew first you had to pull the oven out of storage and set it up?  And then you need to sit on the floor and cut your vegetables? 

It’s the same with building projects – if you have to haul out big, heavy, cumbersome tools from storage and work off the floor, it will inhibit you from getting things done.

Creating a Work Space

The big problem with most people is simply not having the space to dedicate inside your home.  So you have to create the space.  That’s just what this roll away workbench system does.  One minute it’s garage shelves-

The next you roll out your work carts (complete with the heavy tools on them)

And use the carts as workbenches.  The carts can also be pushed together to create larger work surfaces.

The wall storage is still in tact, so we use up the vertical space for storage too.

Surprisingly Easy to Build

These workbench shelves have been built tens of thousands of times by beginners everywhere.  The process is simple and very doable.  You can do this.  Watch this video to show you how:

I did this project as part of the Ryobi Nation Dream workshop, and we had a crew film it and create PDF plans for every project you see here – all completely free for you.  Here’s where you can download all those plans:

Video Showing the Build Process

Our video editor built these tables for her living room and videoed the process.  It’s always nice to see video before you build – thank you Jen for taking the time to do this.

Although she doesn’t build the coffee table, it is the same process as the end table and the console table.

Narrow Side Table [Super Simple Collection]

Living room tables add style, structure and function to a living space. Having end tables creates comfort and convenience – somewhere to put your cup down or rest a phone or remote, while adding storage and grounding to the room.  Every living room needs some accent table(s).

But accent tables can be expensive or time consuming to make.  So we created the Super Simple Collection – a collection of plans designed to be ridiculously easy to build!

Narrow Console Table [Super Simple Collection]

A narrow console table can change the form and function of a hallway, a living room, an entryway, or even a bedroom.  

We love this narrow console table as:

  • An entryway table, perfect for dropping keys and lining up shoes
  • A hall table, with a mirror or gallery over top, full of decor and extra storage
  • A dining room side table, the perfect blank slate for party decorations or filling up an otherwise blank wall
  • As a media console, in the living room or bedroom, under a wall mounted TV
  • In a guest room, as a drop zone for phones, keys, wallets, with open shelving for other items

It’s a super easy build, that looks stylish and can be customized in size and color.
