Here is a finished DIY workbench model. I designed this mobile desk and built it with my wife.
The main table is a large screen and is great for building things. It was wide enough to connect my front and back yards to the outer gate.

I use a Craig pocket jig to join the boards together. In this way, the screws are better hidden and it is easier to place the boards.
However, I will say that the 2×4 boards can be connected with L braces or simply countersunk, and the use of pocket holes is optional.
Btw here's a quick tip for tracking your cut list. I like to write everything down, including the length of each board and how many I need. As you cut the boards, you can scratch them and trace what's left.

As for the bottom frame, it was cut to length with a miter saw and attached to the base frame.
The touchscreen is big enough so I don't mind plugging it into the pocket port. It is also the outermost layer. The screw head turned out fine.
By the way, I added some metal hardware with two 2×4 boards sandwiched between them and glued them to the 2×4s to hold the wedge together.

After all the vertical boards were added, two rectangular frames were attached to support the table top, which we then attached. This step is pretty straightforward.
Now that the structure is built, let's build the table tops. And I promise it will look a lot like desktop after this step.
For table top. I use ¾ inch plywood. Flat I get extra good quality because I want it to be smooth and durable (fewer future replacements).

Also consider a simple tree. The oak veneer plywood I chose was red oak hardwood. This is usually because it creates a stronger scratch-resistant surface than wood. I used the same plywood to create a built-in desk for a home office desk.
We bought 4″ x 8″ plywood from Home Depot and cut it at the store – just make a cross cut (make sure to leave enough space for the table top). So we made it about a third of the way and were able to fit into our little jeep.
After we got the plywood home, we cut it to size on the workbench because it was easy to measure. and cut to size with a circular saw.

About 1/2 inch left on each side. After cutting the plywood, the edges can be quite rough, so I lightly sand it with a layer of sandpaper.
I will try to make the tablet removable. That way, if it gets damaged in the future, it can be easily replaced. That's why I use L brackets to fix the table top. Drill a pilot hole and secure with ⅝ screws.
When attaching the plywood, make sure it is only ¾ inch deep. Where to stop can be drilled with blue tape.

Is the table top a little higher than the ideal table? In this way, the cut wood does not get stuck between the ridges and can fall naturally on the work table.
However, if your table is slightly taller than the table saw. There is an easy fix. Just place something at the end of the table to cheer it up. I like to just use metal sheets or wood sheets.
Now we add a large piece of plywood to this DIY workbench. This is to add a surface to the bottom of the desk for storage.

To reduce costs; I bought cheap plywood for the bottom shelf because I plan to use it to store raw materials.
For attaching plywood to the lower shelf; We use a different method than tabletop. We change less often; So I just glued it to the frame with a very easy and quick nailer.

A Table For My Table Saw
For heavy covers, a template is included. So I basically follow the guide and play with the pattern to make sure the height works well. I also made sure that the roller had to work with the leveler in terms of height.
After installing the hardware, I tested it by turning it over on the workbench and testing the leveler. I must say that they did a very good job.
The castor wheels roll smoothly, making it very easy to roll this workbench out of our garage. And the Leveler is very cool and very easy to raise and lower.

Basically, this project is done. But I did take the step of finishing the table top to make it more durable.
I use a water based polish. I really like that it dries quickly and has no smell. A total of three layers were applied.
Finally, the table horse can be placed on the table and used. This was a huge DIY improvement since I cut the wood on the floor for the table (which I will never go back to lol).

If you've ever used a table saw on the floor, you know exactly how great it is to finally have a proper cart. Life changes and it's easier to kneel. Depending on the work situation, you may be able to accommodate a larger station, but this cart is perfect for my small tent shop.
I built this table saw cart specifically for the Dewalt 10″ compact table saw, but it can easily be modified to fit your table saw.
I designed this cart to fit my Dewalt table. If using a different brand, double check the size. More precisely, you need to measure the space between the rails to make sure it fits the table. When the rails move back and forth to adjust the fence, you need to have enough clearance to avoid hitting the table. my table
