This is my version of a rolling Multi-Function-Table, or MFT. I considered the Festool version, but I had a different set of needs:

-same height as my table saw for in-feed support
-mobile (on wheels)
-plenty of storage

This is built from 1/2” ply for the base, and a left over piece of 3/4” cherry veneered MDF for the top. The top has 20mm holes on 96mm centers. I use this as my main platform for tasks like cutting dominoes, edge banding, routing, etc. The drawers are 12” with 1” of over travel. They stick out far enough so that I can open the lids without any trouble.

As always, thanks for looking.

Looks mighty functional. What method did you use to ensure the holes in the top were spaced evenly apart?

CudaDude: I was just really careful with my ruler and pencil! I used my festool router with a 20mm bit and the track to make the holes. One or two of them are off by a bit, but overall they’re really close.

Great job of design and build—looks like it will be handy in the shop and on projects.

Nice job and that side clamping option is a great extra. Well, done. Glad to see the extra set of casters in case you have blowout. <grin>

Very nice. There is always a need for some organization and a nice working surface.

That will be way stronger than the card table festool sells. Nice job.

I like the full extension drawers that give you full access to your Systainers when open.

Nice work!

Not sure why, but what stands out for me is the groove for your pencil, brilliant. I waste half my day looking for my pencil…. Great project, well done.
