Portable Hobby Chest
Take your favorite hobby on the go with this combination storage chest and portable workbench.
There’s no question that a workshop, no matter how small, can be a great place to unwind and spend a few hours. But sometimes — especially if you’re traveling — it’s not always practical to get into your shop. The idea behind this hobby chest is to provide you with a “workshop” that you can take anywhere, whether it’s just into another room of the house or across the country. It not only offers you several handy worksurfaces, but also provides you with plenty of drawers to store all the tools and supplies that go along with your hobby (whatever that may be).

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
