“Never look a gift horse in the mouth”...
Donated left-over lumber from local friends and some odds and ends I had on hand, produced a nice, new, mobile wood table.
Laminated Maple Top.
Oak legs
Southern Yellow Pine braces.
6” nice swivel locking casters.
(Glad for that because this thing weighs a ton.)
And a million coats of Poly.

So happy to retire my old Frankenstein work table… lol

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Great job, my recycling friend. This one looks sturdy as well. No doubt it is welcome in your shop. With such numbers of coats of poly, it definitively deserves to be rolled in your nice shop !

It’ll be like a new car, the first ding is a grief and a relief!
Enjoy and well done.

One thing I’ve learned…...You can never have enough work benches, assembly tables, or roll-around carts (if you have the room, that is).....They all play a part at one time or another…..You should get lots of milage out of that one….....Stellar job on the build…....My favorite four letter word: Free….....
