I have limited space but would like a workbench for projects when they arise. I'm wondering how flat the table folds or if it's meant to set-up/take down as I'm envisioning or not.

Answer: 
Since the bottom shelf is not nailed to the table, it is easily removed so you can fold the legs back into the table. Remember to take into consideration the weight of the table if you are considering setting it up and breaking it down as needed.

It is very easy, safe and fast to set up for use and fold away for storage.
That takes me all of about *30 seconds* or so, and I'm old, cautious and slow.
Remember that when you unfold it for use, you only need to lift one side at a time. It is not heavy and you never need to lift the entire weight since the other end is always supported.

It is very easy, safe and fast to set up for use and fold away for storage.
That takes me all of about *30 seconds* or so, and I'm old, cautious and slow.
Remember that when you unfold it for use, you only need to lift one side at a time. It is not heavy and you never need to lift the entire weight since the other end is always supported.
You can also lay it on its back-side, unfold the legs, then tip it up. That is roughly equivalent to lifting a half-sheet of plywood. Reverse that process to fold back up for storage.
You never need to dead-LIFT the entire weight at once; you merely TILT it up or down as needed.
I store mine in a closet-like corner of our garage, on end, so it is vertical against a wall.
I went out to the garage just now to measure the bench.
Not counting the back-board, the entire bench top when folded is roughly 4 & 1/2 inches thick.
The back-board projects 2 & 1/4 inches above that.
It would fit inside the average broom closet without trouble.
Just visit any Home Depot that has one in the cardboard shipping box. THAT is the folded dimension.
I'd estimate the shipping-box is 6 or 7 inches deep.
As you can see from the description, the other dimensions are 20" X 72".
The center shelf is very lightweight, made from '1-by' strips and a 1/4 inch board, so it too is easy to move. Most high-quality dinning-room-chairs weigh more than the center shelf.
Even when the entire unit was boxed for transport, I was able to easily slide it in and out of my van without any helpers. I wasn't kidding about being old-cautious and slow. At my age, I can't afford any more back injuries and I don't work fast because I'm NEVER "on the clock."
I also wasn't exaggerating about the 30-second fold-up time. That's really how long it takes. Read Less

Answer: 
The bench is pretty stable considering that it's a fold up and out of the box but placing wheels on it is not something that I would recommend unless you were only going to move it on an occasion. The other problem is that wheels don't provide stability with something of this nature and that would be compromised. I would have to
say no.

Sure. You can easily attach castors to any wooden bench. For post-style castors, you need only drill a hole to accept the post. Flange-mount castors only require four screw, but you should make sure the flange will fit on a 2x4, or else attach a wider mounting board to these 2x4 legs.

If you plan to put two of these side by side, you'll have to deal with the gap that the bolt heads would cause because they extend out about 1/2", (you can see them in one of my pics of my review).

If you plan to put two of these side by side, you'll have to deal with the gap that the bolt heads would cause because they extend out about 1/2", (you can see them in one of my pics of my review). However, if you simply cut the backboards flush with the table's surface, then your could place them side by side and even secure them together. In fact, with the back boards, the total width of each bench would be about 22" making the assembled two, 44" wide.
The backboards are very securely nailed to the bench with about eight 3" long, high quality, spiral nails. It took about 30 or 40 minutes for me to remove it using a hammer, pry bar, and wood blocks, (to hammer and pry against so I wouldn't harm the beam or the table). Read Less

Sure you could, but then you're defeating the convenience of having a collapsable bench.
For a larger work-surface, you would be better served by using TWO sturdy saw horses with a plywood top, homemade to dimensions you want.
I often use hollow core doors over two saw horses when I need a large surface for assembly or as a cutting bench.

Sure you could, but then you're defeating the convenience of having a collapsable bench.
For a larger work-surface, you would be better served by using TWO sturdy saw horses with a plywood top, homemade to dimensions you want.
I often use hollow core doors over two saw horses when I need a large surface for assembly or as a cutting bench.
Hollow core doors are available in different widths and are VERY rigid. They are also lightweight which makes them easy to move. Even if you buy a new door ( approx $21) and two new saw horses ($15 to $30) you're looking at less than a C-note to get a LARGE surface that easily stores away (vertically) without taking up much (horizontal) real-estate.
You also might like the TOUGHBUILT metal saw horses (about $25 to $30) which have two metal hooks to hold 2x4s on either side. The 2x4s can be cut to any length but typically people use pre-cut 8-foot studs so the saw horses will support a full 4' X 8' sheet of plywood, ($15 to $45 depending on the type of plywood. They claim that set-up will hold a metric ton... which is roughly 2200 pounds. I don't think plywood would support that much weight, but it is possible the sawhorses could.
Either way, those solutions are cheap, fast, easy, portable and stow-able. Hope that helps! Read Less

Answer: 
Yes this would be possible. You might need to add a 2x4 between them that has holes drilled for the heads of the lag bolts. The back lip that comes with it has a groove that covers the lag bolts on the back. Replacing this with a 2x4 with grooves on both sides (for the lag bolts) would allow for easy joining of the two benches.

Answer: 
Ehh, the crossbrace is basically level with the floor between the legs, so you would have to seperate that after cutting the legs shorter and re-bolt it to the legs at their new height, level with the floor again.
So yes, i think it's possible, but its going to be just a tad more work then simply buzzing an inch or two off the bottom of the legs.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 229 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bought two they so good Great value and versatile. Used one for workbench and one converted into a bar. Stained with dark walnut and polyurethane, wrapped in reed. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Value for the Price I wanted an inexpensive workbench for our beach-house. All things considered at $75 this is an excellent value. Mine had an over torqued broken screw holding the top in place; easily replaced. The particle board top is easily damaged by placing a wet item on it, but a light sanding and coat of polyurethane solved the concern. July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I wanted a potting bench It is hard to believe but this bench does literally assemble in less than the time it takes to getting out of the box. It is sturdy, good quality, made in the USA. Very few flaws in the wood. We put casters on it so it could be easily moved, and it folds up if you need to store it. Ingenious! I put two coats of waterproofing on it and I think I will get a piece of galvanized steel for the top. Couldn't be happier. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by garage work bench 6' work bench with a middle shelf and splash board. So easy to setup out of the box. Sweet value. Half the cost of a similar 60" wood bench from Harbor Freight less the 4 drawers and wood vice. Heavy duty expected to last many years. August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Choice Looked at several work tables for the garage -- so glad I found this one. Based on the price and reviews, it was an easy decision. Even at such a low price, it comes assembled and sets up literally in a couple minutes (including unpackaging). I didn't even need help, but it is quite heavy (i.e. solid) -- save your back and use a buddy. If you're gonna throw a vise on it and bang around, consider anchoring the shelf into the foldable legs with a couple screws and it'll reach "tank" status! Great product at about half the cost of a metal equivalent. Now get to work! July 30, 2016

I bought two of these benches and so I have my own work area as well. We are expecting three shelves tomorrow and our garage will be completely organized. They were a snap to put together and are very strong. July 25, 2016
