I have lots of shelves and lots of mini tables with wheels. I would
watch out for the sheet metal if you are doing any electronics. you
can't put a powered pcb (arduino) on there :P. i screwed a board
(Melamine) on my small table and a 2X4 under it to it doesn't tip
over. just wait, drive around townhouses and project. you will find a
suitable board. I like the lots of tables. I can' have many projects
going at once. I used a bunch of stuff I found in the trash really
old tv stands or end tables old desk and I have them all side by
side. My wife can move them out of the way too when she needs the
