I built a work table to be able to have my bike project at a good height a few years ago and it worked out well and I still use it. However, I wanted two more so I could have all three project bikes available to work on so I designed a lighter, cheaper, and easier to build work table. Now that I have started using them and I am very happy with how they turned out I wanted to post pictures to give other shed builders some ideas. Starting with the finished picture so if you aren't interested you won't have to skim through the boring build stuff. In that picture you can see the new tables and also the original design. The new ones have a storage shelf so I can keep all the parts for that project right under it. The original table was shorter (too short really) and lower. It was built ridiculously strong and is very heavy. (I could support a car on it) The new tables are simple to build and inexpensive to build. Just one sheet of plywood and seven 2x3's (8'), some glue and screws to put it together. An elevated bike build table makes everything SO much easier and more comfortable to work on. If you don't have one, and I see that many don't, consider building your own. Or buy the $300 Harbor Freight table... Still with me? Here is the plans I drew up: This was what worked for me, the height and length can easily be changed of course. I didn't take many construction pictures and they go together quickly since they are very simple. Step one: Hit up the home improvement store and pick up (8) 2"x3" x 8'-0". You can use 2"x4" for more strength but that will make the vertical room of the shelf smaller, will cost more, and will be heavier. For that matter you could use 2"x6" studs for a super heavy table. Buy the sheet of plywood and if possible have them rip it into two pieces full length. Home Depot, Lowe's, and others will make a nice straight cut for free on their panel saw. The two pieces now make the wider top and the narrower shelf. Cut the end off the shelf piece of plywood as shown. Then it is just a matter of cutting the 2x3's to length and screwing everything together. Do NOT nail it together. You can get by with nailing the plywood to the rails and cross braces but screws are much better. I glued all the joints and the cross braces. I built the top and shelf first and then put the posts on the underside of the top: Yes, I used a framing square to make sure the posts were straight. I then clamped blocks on the four corner posts to support the shelf while I screwed it in place. I built the second one at the same time, and on top of the first one You may notice that I didn't put the center cross brace under the shelf. I stood on the shelf once it was framed with the 2x3's and it didn't deflect so I left the brace out. I used 3/4" plywood for strength, if you used thinner plywood you may need more cross bracing to support the shelf and the top. When the tables were all screwed up I filled the holes, cracks, gaps and everything with wood filler. After that dried I took my belt sander to the edges to make them neater and I rounded the corners of the top some in case I walk into them. Hmmm, no pictures of them filled and sanded. Use your imagination. They are now ready to use... If you like the unfinished look. I don't, so I paint everything. First: two coats of Killz primer: Then two coats of red on the legs and shelf, two coats of white on the top. I also painted the top of my old build table white to match the new ones. It had been hammered silver on top but I wanted a cleaner look to make it easier to find small bolts, screws, and tools... Some rearranging of the shop to put the build table where I want them: I bought some wheel chocks on Craig's List some time back so I bolted them down: There is about 3 feet between each build table so that I can easily work on either side of every project. I have floor mats for standing or kneeling, and roller stools I sit on for most work. So, how do I get the bike up that high you ask? Simple loading ramp, light, strong, and it hangs on the wall. I use the ramp to load my dirt bikes on the trailer so I already had it. The (used) ramp cost more than the materials to build the tables... OK, but my shop isn't wide enough to load a heavy bike on the ramp that way, so.... I designed the table so that I could roll my floor jack (or atv jack) under the ends to lift and pull them. I could drag them around but that is not very easy so I use my snow machine rollers (Costco) I just jack the end up an inch and slip the rollers under the side rails. I can also put the rollers on both ends and roll the table anywhere I want, turn it end for end, move it out for more access, etc. I don't leave the rollers under the tables since they roll so easily it would be too difficult to work on the bike. I store them at the wall end upside down so they don't roll around. I can now work on all three projects at the same time, work on the engine rebuild bench, and sit down in my "thinking chair". I also have my four current ride bikes ready to roll out and ride away. If you would like your own build table and have any questions I will be happy to answer them. We bought this old house last year and I have spent most of my time remodeling. Now I can focus on the shop with new work benches, new cabinets, new flooring, and painting the walls and ceiling.
