A Modular Workstation

Picture of Modular Workstation

What if you had a workstation that was reconfigurable from the ground up? That’s exactly what this workstation seeks to do, make a unit that can be quickly customised for specific project needs. The reason I made this unit is that I don’t have a traditional workbench which I can use so I keep moving from one place to another. It’s quite irritating¬†to move individual components, and even of I do, I often lose something on the way. I made this workstation to try and solve those problems.

A run-through of the configurations :

1. Base configuration – you get a large box with a screwdriver set and a hammer. It’s big enough to fit two circular saws and have some space left over.

2. Large modules – two of these can be placed in the box at any time. There are four in total, the jigsaw module, the drill module, the carpentry module and the electronics module.

3. Smaller modules – three of these can be placed in the box along with any two larger modules. These have removable dividers so they can be used either for small parts or for keeping slightly larger items like an arduino or a raspberry pi.

I’ve been using this for quite a while now, and I can honestly say that if you don’t have a permanent workstation, this can be incredibly useful to work on projects. To learn how to make this, please click here.¬†Cheers!
