This multi-use table has many functions. I’d been spinning this one around in my head for quite some time and finally became happy with what I’d like to incorporate into it. It is just under 3’x2’x3’ in size.

I made a notched spreader out of an old credit card and spread plenty of glue on 3/4” MDF, putting tempered hardboard on top with lots of weight on it, letting it dry overnight:

I squared up the 3 sections on the table saw and mitered maple hardwood edges around each one:

I routed the one section for T-track. I fabricated the smaller pieces of T-track in order to get the T-bolts in and later gave the ends a shot of paint:

I used a very thin layer of Gorilla glue on the T-track bottoms being careful to not get near the screw holes as this glue expands 3 times its size. I really clamped down on the T-track not wanting it to move at all and just barely dipped each screw tip into the glue before putting them in. The T-track table came out very well:

I leveled up the outfeed table, installed the drawer, and put on the piano hinges & legs:

I painted it up, put a maple trim on the face, and loaded it onto the mobile base. It stores nicely in the corner of my shop:

It stores my Pocket Hole Jig, My Pocket Hole toolbox and accessories, and my large Fat Max toolbox.

I agree. Very efficient use of space and who does not need an assembly and out feed table?
Did a nice job. It looks good and should function perfectly.

I love the T-track table top. Been thinking about something like this since I saw the new Rockler top that is similar.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice build. Folding legs and T track is a great idea.
