DIY Moto work table. Nice winter project.

So I'm getting tired of laying down on the floor or sitting Indian style and working on my bike. What I needed was a moto work table. There's lots of ideas on the web and this is what I came up with.

Measures 86"L x 24"w x 20"h-------20" with the casters on.

Legs are 4x4 and braces are 2x4. These metal braces are called Simpson Strong Ties and they make a work bench very strong. At HD or Lowes.

Notch out the 4x4 so the 2x4 sits on it flush. This way makes your table extremely strong in the middle.

Casters that lock. This way you can put your bike anywhere in the garage up against a wall. Those are the Simpson Strong Ties, takes 22 screws per corner

My work bench has this garage floor liner. Might go this route or the spray on bed liner like Papi mentioned. If this helps out anyone I'm glad. Pm me if you need help.

awesome idea!

if you want a little more stability, add these to your bench:

not cheap (~$40 each) for workbench floor locks, but they prevent even locked wheels from wiggling

How do you put the bike on the table? Ramps or a jack?

These huge tent stakes I found just lying around should hold my chock from moving forward. Pulls straight out.

Very nice. I made mine from scrap pallet wood. Also very happy I don't have to work on the floor anymore.
