DIY Portable Workbench with Storage - Free Plans

So my garage has been a complete disaster lately and with projects going on, what seems like, every weekend I really needed a portable workbench with storage for the excessive amount of stains and tools that I have been accumulating. I came up with this design for a portable plywood workbench with storage out of necessity for something that was not only a solid work surface but something that would be the best use of space.

I installed my casters using three 1-1/4″ pocket screws in each caster so that they went into the vertical plywood used for the sides. You could also use 3/4″ screws without having to worry about the screws sticking out the other side of the base panel.
