Looks like a mighty fine table design. Wish I had room for one. Right now I use 2 saw horses to support a 3' x 4' rectangle lazy susan type. The swivel allows for easy access while working from one location.

Looking forward to following the build. Wish I had a shop to have something like this.

I remember when you stole, 'er won that bid for all that BB ply. Still no remorse I see.:lol:

When done will it be mobile?  One picture shows one mobile the other not.  Just curious, wondering if you had a preference.  Like Grandpadave I don't have the room but you never know might win the lottery.... If I ever bought a ticket.:Laughing:

Probably not mobile.   HD casters are real expensive.  Right now, I'm using "shop boxes" with a 3x5 piece of basketball court on the top.  Previously, I had an old "battleship" metal desk, that I did have raised up on casters.  It was too big to move so I disassembled and hauled the pieces to the scrap yard.  Oh, wait, I have casters,.... maybe.

I made a simple table frame (from 1x3) 60"x24", with wheels (found set/4 at HD for $20).  Then I dropped a pocket door slab 80x30 on it, put little pcs wood on underside of slab to register it on frame.  When I need room, put top against the wall (have little hold down for it on wall), and frame standing up against it.  Worked well to collapse the space needed.

 

Then I gave a car away and am much happier now with a permanent "this is mine" space allocation in garage.

I made a sample table like my second photo for the furniture bank. (see other post for that) I like it and have decided to proceed (when I get the time).  I want to put a drop leaf on one end so it's shorter for smaller projects but I get the full 8' for larger ones that I seem to be making these days.  I'll use my bargain wine boxes for the drawers (draws) and have some nice close storage.   Now if I can only get the time to do something for myself.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
