I’ve been making a lot of built in cabinetry for our new house over the last few months, which has meant dealing with a lot of sheet goods. My old grid of 1×4s had taken a beating and finally gave in to all the abuse. So, I needed to make a new plywood cutting table. This one is made with half-lapped 1×4s, just like the last one. It measures 4’ x 8’ so it fully supports a sheet of ply.
I also reinforced the spots where the grid connects to my sawhorses. These area broke on my previous grid, so I made these little blocks that are glued and nailed. They make that part of the assembly much sturdier.
I can back my truck right up to this grid, slide the sheet goods onto it, and slice and dice with my track saw. Makes it super easy to rough out parts or even cut them to final dimension. It disassembles in seconds and stores in a pretty small footprint when not in use.
Thanks for looking.
