Scissor-Lift Workbench

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.
