Hello to you all,
New to woodworking and I would like to pick your brains about a table top.
I made a table base that I can fold for winter storage in my garage (the boss wants to have the car in the garage when winter starts).
What do you think about the table top. Has to be easy enough to drop it on the base, just by myself. I was thinking about 38*72 made out of 3/4 plywood.
Would like to attache a vise at one end (left side) and would like to install a router somewhere on the right side ( a cut out and insert the plate). I have a Grizzly plate and a Craftsman router, and I also built a router lift from one of the woodworking magazines
The base, when open, is 36” by 60”. My vise is about 10” wide and I was thinking about 1” for the front and right side.
What do you think? Any Ideas? Am I doing it right?
Your opinions are welcome.
