A workbench that offers a step up
With a solid MDF top, polypropylene tool tray, and a 3-outlet, 15 amp surge-protected power strip; this 48-pound fold-away bench already does more than just offer an extra 19x40" work surface. Presently, our test model is seeing regular use as a chop saw station. And when tested with a universal vise, the Vika functioned surprisingly well as sturdy second workbench. Although it’s not ideal for handtool woodworking, but as a general-purpose garage workbench, or as a jobsite bench for decks and other exterior projects, it’s almost perfect.
There’s more. Flip up the top, and you’ll fi nd a non-skid, honeycomb polypropylene deck; retract the legs and you’ve got a sturdy scaffold capable of supporting two people (500 pound capacity). The 21" tall legs might not sound like much, but they can make all the difference when it’s time to hang wall cabinets or tackle some less exciting household task like painting or wallpapering.
