This is a 3 sided flip, flip, flop table. This is the second table I have made that flips. It is made up of 3/4″ pre-finished birch that was a left over shelf I used in my house cabinets. The bottom is also 3/4″ ply. The table used left over pieces of 3/4” Baltic birch. This unit was built because I don’t have a ton of bench top space and all three of these machines are the bench top style. I started with the Drill press this is the tool that I use the most often in day to day operations so typically it will always be on top. The Scroll saw is right underneath it. If the drill press is flipped back at a 90 degree angle then it kicks the scroll saw out that is the only problem that I have with this unit it does take up some floor space to use the two lower machines but it stores very nicely in the upright position. the last tool is the oscillating spindle sander which also houses the powerstrip. One plug to power all the tools. This unit balances very well It did take some time to figure out where to put the hole for the balance to be just right. It is locked off by a 1/4” steel pin.
