Wow is that ever well thought out . I was sceptical till I seen that the top could be locked down in order not to wooble after being raised .
You can certainly see a lot of thought threw the years went into designing this as they tried to design a way to get past each obstacle.

In my case , I want to match my table saws height in order to use it as an outfield table on occasion , so I need a variable way to set the height, and not in steps

I like the cart, but like his shop even better. WOW, it's about 20 times the size of mine, and clean and well organized too. Take the time to subscribe to his videos and then sit back in amazement and dream for a few hours.

I saw that cart on the other forum, it certainly is well thought out and constructed - too bad I don't have enough room for it. My adjustable workbench is sized to fit down the aisle between the table saw and my big bench, so only 30" wide, but the height adjusts to be able to use it as an outfeed table for the table saw but low enough to use for assembly. I did copy the plans for Woodsmith's Shop Cart that they're currently building on the TV show, I think I can make enough room for that and it should be handy for laying "stuff" on while I'm working.

How clever is that?

If eating carrots improves the eyesight, how come there are so many dead rabbits on the roads?

Yeah, nice. IF you have a huge shop like that to roll it around in. And he forgot the most important function, it's also a place to set your coffee cup down. Too gimmicky for me tho, a rolling workbench, if I needed one, would accomplish a good part of what that cart does, and would take a whole lot less time to make too. I'd pass on it even if I had room to maneuver it around. The guy must have had a load of free time to design, then build that thing.

Watched some of his videos on how he built pieces of benches & etc. This guy is very clever. I just wonder how long it took him to conceive the ideas & build the shop. I had the shop space until we sold our house and the shop went with it. (how stupid was that, dang it), but never had that array of workshop tools. Old shop was 1200sf, new one is 480sf but better than nothing.

Theo this guy may be smart. If he is he could have a light that went off in his head and he made it.

Wow what a nice table/bench/cart. The thinking behind it is good, The statement ''completely home made'' is confusing. There is nothing home made about that shop. It is pro all the way. How much investment in that shop $$$$. This is a dream shop with a huge budget and if I ever win a lotto... This young man is well educated in woodworking, and is it possible that he might be sponsored by Festool ? so many of their tools everywhere. How about that table saw and combo joiner/planer, and the shaper, somewhere over the rainbow, that would be my pot of gold.
