Maybe not a dead flat surface but pretty close. It was time to replace the original table which was built over time with various parts being added as needed. I had a large piece of laminate left over from another project, on 1 1/4” MDF. The old table had a groove down the middle which I used to clear the circular saw blade for cross cutting panels. I plan to add a 2×4 rig to the new one for the same purpose. I will also add a rack for paper and a shelf for the compressor.

Wow that’s avery practical design for a workbench .Something I need badly.I find myself making things on a piece of 6×4 foot on my saw top .Don’t laugh it has worked til now.The problem I have is I need storage space all my timber is currently sored in my workshop and it takes up space so as soon as I work through it I wil have room for such a workbench myself love the simplicity and practicallity of the design regards Alistair

Very well-designed table. The rest of the shop is enviable as well.

Nice looking table. I am interested in how you will add some of the accessories you mention. Please be sure to post some pics as you add the upgrades.
