Expandable Assembly Cart
No matter what size project you're building, this assembly table makes it easy to put it together. Raise or lower the table to hold projects at a comfortable working height. And flip up two wings to expand the work surface.
When it comes to assembling a project, it’s hard to find just the right place. The top of my bench can be too high up off the floor (or too small) to handle some projects. And assembling a project on the floor is hard on my knees and back. That’s why I built this assembly table. To hold a project at a comfortable working height, I just raise or lower the table. And for big projects, I can make the work surface larger. To adjust the height of the assembly table, each leg has a post that slides inside a sleeve. A series of holes in each post lets you raise the table up to 30", or lower it down to 21" off the floor. The nice thing about adjusting the height of the table is you don’t need a helper to do it. That’s because each end can be raised (or lowered) separately. And making the work surface bigger when assembling large projects is just as easy. That’s because there’s an extension wing that flips up on each side of the table. To hold the wings and the weight of the project, a sturdy support pulls out from underneath the table. Another thing I like about this project is its storage shelf. It’s a perfect place for glue, clamps, and parts that are going to be assembled.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
