This is the new addition to the shop. It will function as a workbench/outfeed/assembly table. The design of the top is taken from the Ultimate Workbench by Ron Paulk. www.paulkhomes.com It is constructed from 3/4 Pine Plywood. If you’d like to see more and read about the build visit my blog at http://somehowitallcametogether.blogspot.com/2014/06/the-long-awaited-completion-of.html

Looks real nice…you could also seal off a couple of the sections so you could use it a downdraft table also.

Looks like a great assembly table.

Pretty nifty I think, had I a workshop I would build one of those,... purely because of its versatility.

Good work on the blog!

P.S. How do you manage to keep every thing (cast iron) so shiny!!

That is the table ! There are lots of good ideas in it. Hat’s off. I thinking about replicating the top part only.

Thanks for posting.

Best,

Serge

Thanks for all the comments. I tried to think of every possible need I could have for this table. I would definitely look at Ron Paulk’s plans. He also has a whole series of videos on YouTube that walk you through the entire build.

It is a beautiful piece of work. I think I would want to make a top that is easily replaceable, though. Yours is so nice, I’d always be worried about scratching it or getting glue on it!

Great job!
