Once it is assembled, how easy would it be to fold back up if I wanted it as only an occasional workspace?

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.

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.

Sure. Remove them and chop them down. You can see the bolt that holds them on (same on the back). So you unscrew the four bolts and cut the legs from the bottom and reinstall the cross support near the floor.

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.

Answer: 
Sure you could but then since the legs fold and unfold you would be wise to place a 2x4 at least across the back and I would suggest the front as well but then that would hinder your purpose I suppose. The bottom shelf definitely stabilizes the table and also prevents the legs from ever folding in. My suggestion would be not to eliminate the shelf unless you reinforce it in some other way.

Leaving the shelf off makes it potentially unstable as the legs could easily buckle and fold up. If your goal is to get more space under the bench by leaving the shelf off, then I'd put a bolt through the front of the table and through the legs to keep the legs in a permanent position.

Answer: 
The shelf DOES help stabilize the legs, however mine stands OK without the shelf.
It all depends on what you intend to do with the bench. If you were doing hand-planing for instance, that would apply lateral pressure and the legs might collapse. For light sawing or mechanical work where most force is straight down, no problem.

It all depends on what you intend to do with the bench. If you were doing hand-planing for instance, that would apply lateral pressure and the legs might collapse. For light sawing or mechanical work where most force is straight down, no problem.
Unlike the picture, the legs on mine are canted outward slightly, so that adds some stability even without the lower shelf. In some cases I have deliberately left one side of the legs retracted so I could place the bench at an angle for better access to the boards I was cutting.
And if for some reason you really do not want the shelf in the way, you could always put a 2x4 between the lower runners for support. You could either cut notches in that 2x4 like the shelf has, OR you could temporarily nail that board in place.
This is a very rough and quickly-made utility bench and that is part of its appeal. It's plenty sturdy for most rough and dirty jobs, yet it is versatile and very cheap. I've attached grinders to it, vices, special jigs for routing and sawing, drilled holes in it and even used it upside down for out-feed support. It is much more stabile with the shelf or some support in place, but not every job requires that stability. Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE IT I'm using this bench in my SHE workshop. It fit perfectly in the space and is plenty sturdy for the work I will be using it for. My sewing machine fits great on it! I will paint the legs and seal the top wood just to preserve the top for years of use. You don't be sorry - it fits in the budget! September 24, 2016
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 They say you get what you pay for and honestly you get more with this price and product. We turned it into a craft table and added some stools to it. Drilled some holes and ran some extension cords and BOOM. Best $80 I ever spent. Well worth every penny and you literally take it out of the box and lift and it is ready to go. Everything is pre built, VERY easy to put together. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Can not beat for the price The materials alone to build something similar would have been as much, if not more than the work bench. It was well constructed. The packaging and its condition left a bit to be desired...i think because it sat so long...it was really beat up. But, the bench is great...bigger than you think and the shelf underneath is huge and great for storage. October 18, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love these We purchased 4 of these and love them. They are so easy to set up and sturdy enough for our garage. We popped the back off 2, cut a 1x1 to fit between them (over the heads of the hardware) and attached them together with scraps for a bigger work area. Carpet scrap from home depot stapled down. Would purchase again! October 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needed modification When I unfolded the legs the work surface separated from the frame. The radius at the top of the legs was done badly (too tall) and caused the top to pry loose. When I attempted to remove the screws from the work surface to resolve this issue, 8 of the 10 screw heads were broken off causing me to remove the screws with vice grips (thank goodness there was enough screw left to grab) after breaking remaining glue free with a flat bar in order to remove the top. It seems like a bad idea to glue the top down anyway as this hinders the inevitable replacement of the top so I simply secured the top with 2" screws. Once it was all said and done the finished product is acceptable but this product did not function as advertised without considerable modification. Considering the poor quality control I can not recommend this product at it's selling price. I would expect an item of this quality to sell for about twenty five dollars less. October 18, 2016
