Homemade Rolling Walker to Workbench Conversion
With a piece of scrap aluminum, a piano hinge, and some 1 x 6s, John Stuber of DeSoto, MO, turned his wheeled walker into a lightweight rolling workbench that folds up and accommodates hand tools. From the scrap aluminum he made the 16- x 24-inch tabletop and affixed wood pieces onto the sides to contain the hand tools. Two short boards connect the long piano hinge to the walker's tubular frame, which allows it to fold. Raising up the top, then depressing the buttons at the walker's front corners, releases to legs so that they can be folded in.
