These are the images of the plans i am making for an assembly table:
in the center of my workshop there currently is a large welding table, wich is handy for laying wood on it, but not at all to do any manipulations on it. i am going to move all the non-woodworking stuff to another corner of the “barn” in wich i have my shop.
so i will need an assembly table, i currently use my workbench for that by placing a particle board on top wich is far from ideal.
I want the assembly table to be not just a big flat surface that wastes enormous space when not in use, i want it to be worth the space it will take. so i plan on adding a second low-assembly table that slides inside the main one, to solve the “finding a flat floor to do the final assembly of larger furniture” problem, since a 90cm high assembly table is too high to assembly anything large on top of it.
the design is based on the one from the wood whisperer with a torsion box, but i want the front and sides to be 100% real pine, filling the rear panels with mdf.
i am thinking of other functions it could have, besides router table and sanding/airfilter table wich i plan to make a separate table for.
the dimensions of the top will by 2by1 meter.
