I needed some extra work surface in my small shop this summer while completing a project and came up with this. It is an old radial arm saw table with a cleat screwed on the bottom. It is a push fit between the ways. Should have thought of it years ago.

You have lots of room to build a bigger shop? Good idea.

I thought about a bigger shop again Andre, but since I mostly just turn stuff I’m going to try organize myself better, make do with what I have.

I like it, small and effective but you can put it away.

Necessity is the mother of invention. You proved that once again. Well done.
