This step by step diy project is about rolling benchtop tool stand plans. I have designed this rolling tool stand, so you can make your workshop more versatile. You can organize all your tools efficiently. You can make adjustments to my plans, to suit your needs. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.
When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a rolling benchtop tool stand
The first step of the project is to build the frames for the benchtop tool stand. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then assemble them together tightly with 2 1/2″ screws. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes before inserting the screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.
Attach the 2×4 legs to the frames of the benchtop tool stand. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything with attention. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention.
Use 2×4 lumber for the tabletop. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then drill pocket holes, as shown in the diagram. Add glue to the joints and align the slats at both ends. Insert the 2 1/2″ screws to assemble the tabletop together tightly.
Center the frame of the to the tabletop. Drill pocket holes through the frame and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Add glue to the joints.
Fit 1×4 slats to the lower shelf. Cut the slats at 29″ and then secure them to the frame with glue and 2″ nails.
Fit caster wheels to the bottom of the legs, as shown in the diagram.
Last but not least, you should take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of stain or paint, to protect the components from decay and to
You can easily make adjustments to my plans to suit your needs and tastes. Moreover, you can adjust the height of the legs. See all my workshop projects HERE.
