He Built A Portable Stool
Mel Primrose, Westlock, Alberta: He built a 5 by 7-ft. portable work bench that he can move around the shop, sometimes right outside onto the building's concrete apron.
  He made a light channel iron frame and added three large wooden storage drawers on each side. The table's legs each have 3-in. castor wheels, and he installed a vice, various hooks and a power outlet to make it more useful.
  "I even surprised myself how much I use this table and how often I roll it outside. When the weather's nice, I like to move it out onto the pad in front of the shop in the daylight. If I'm not finished at the end of the day, I can just roll it back inside for the night."
  To compliment the portable table, Primrose also built a portable stool and tool caddy that can go along with the table. In addition, he made a variety of tool carriers that can sit on the table but make it easy to transport various accessories from one place to another
