Just a short entry, you’ve all seen dozens of these tables now, but had to get mine in too. After all, I haven’t shown any progress since our move to the new homestead. Anyway, typical Wood Whisperer torsion box assembly table with under storage. Sides of the top are red oak, and the bottom oak plywood. Nothing but poly for the finish. I made it a little taller than Marc to use as a infeed/outfeed for my table saw, and it works great for those big sheets of plywood and MDF with my little saw. Only a couple of views, one of the table itself then from behind the saw (which now looks really small now…lol). You can’t see all the mistakes, and that was on purpose…LOL, I made some boo boo’s here and there but that’s what happens when you hurry. Now, I should be able to take my time on the next projects that I have this great table to work on…and thanks to Marc for the idea.

A nice table indeed. It looks to be very sturdy. I need to get one of these built myself…

Great looking table and a place to burn your scraps – er mistakes.
