Portable bench

Recommended Posts

This is a portable bench that I design on Google Sketch up. I want to build it in the near future because I don't own a workshop and I'm working on a balcony or inside according to the weather.

I'm planing to build it from 2 by 4 cm  and 12 by 1,5 cm boards or any cheaper material.

The whole bench is portable as You can see on the pictures, is closes by a piano hinge and can be mounted on a wall with a french cleat and a pull up legs, or can stand on a table top without the legs.

Any suggestions, comments or questions are welcome.

And there are the dimensions on the pictures in mm.

Great idea, just make sure, that the legs wont flip in while working!

Nice design Sinan. The french cleat would be the perfect way to hang the unit.

Have you thought of making the work surface cantilevered to the back, which would negate interference from the legs? With the right bracket you could also lock it in place when on a tabletop.
