I teach a program at a high school that prepares students for jobs or college work as an optician – a job I was trained by the US Navy to do. I was in need of a small table for my students to take measurements of patients and checking glasses. It was easier for me to build this using the blue big box lumber because I get a deal on wood for the school. I did find a few good boards there
The top was made by laminating red oak and maple strips cut down to give it a better look and keep it from moving too much. The legs were bought pre-glued and I cut them using a bandsaw and taper jig.
I was surprised that the leg supports provide so much stability – it’s very stable in all directions.
