With this multi-use, compact workbench, you can raise any project to a comfortable working height easily and safely.
Scissor-lift carts are useful in any workshop for loading, moving, and unloading heavy items. But recently we decided to take the cart to the next level and make it even more useful by adding an auxiliary top. The mechanical advantage provided by the hydraulic cylinder is incredibly convenient. But by adding the additional workbench (complete with vise, tool tray, and magnetic tool holder) it’s easy to turn a one dimensional cart into a must-have, multi-use workhorse. The hollow-body design and dust port allow it to also function as a downdraft sanding table. Best of all, building this workbench won’t take you more than a couple of pleasant days in the shop.

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.
