I decided to hack a movable workbench when I moved from an apartment with a small room as a workshop. Now I have a bigger room and I can move the bench around when I clean and when I do a bigger project.
It took a day’s work to complete the bench and the biggest cost was the chests. What I like most is that I now have a nice open surface for my projects.
