Where should I start. This was probably the most enjoyable project that I have made to date. Constructed from douglas fur and left overs of previous custom project this thing is simply a monster. It took me about 3 weeks to build and the only change I made after the fact was adding casters to make it mobile. The cavity under the table top was a great addition to stow tools and boards as you are working on projects. The table is 4ft wide and 3ft deep so you have plenty of space for laying out project. This is manly used for building toys and other crafts. Most of the wood was salvaged locally in the midwest as living in Indianapolis gives me plently of latitude. Thanks for checking out my project.

That is really nice. and you used reclaimed wood. I may have to make something like that to hold my lathe and all the odds and ends that seem to accumulate. Excellent job.
