Today I manged to cut all the parts for the torsion box assembly table top.
I am constructing the internal grid out of 1/2” MDF. The space between grid components is 6.5”. The outside of the grid is constructed from 3/4” MDF and is 6’6” by 3’. The skins are 1/2” MDF and a top of 1/8” hardboard.
I started by breaking down the MDF using my Festool TS55. I cut a clean edge, and then measured and cut a spacer stick that would be used for all the other cuts. Since all the internal grid pieces are the same height, I cut a spacer about 2.5” and used that to cut all the other pieces from the sheet of MDF. I trimmed each piece to length on my Dewalt SCMS.
Last, I ganged and cut the (2) 1/2” MDF skins and 1/8” hardboard about 1/2” oversize to allow for trimming when fully assembled.
My first ever video. I’m very happy with the results!
