Finally run out of projects to put in front of this assembly table. I stumbled upon KV 100 lb drawer slides at Amazon for 6.00+ a pr.Needed 18 pr. so it was a good find.
The original plan was from the Woodwisperer,and FWW.All I changed was the size and I put in 18 drawers. It has a torsion box top, that was fun to build even with all the dust MDF makes.All the drawers were made from 1/2 ” Baltic birtch,with 3/4 ” oak ply fronts.I think I have drawers down Pat now.It is a good fit for my shop.It even doubles as an extended outfeed table when I run full sheets of ply through the saw.
Thanks for looken

I’m jealous! That is one nice assembly table and you can walk all around it. I wish I had the space.
Nice job. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome! It looks so flat, you could also use it for a ping pong table ;-)

I really like this one. I love the clean fronts of this table and the cabinets in the background. This project will serve you well for many years. BTKS

I worked for a guy who had an assembly table much like that one. Drawers big enough to actually hold stuff and a nice big top. Will make you work much easier I’m sure. NICE JOB!

Thanks all !! Now that I have the shop pretty much the way I want it,( well we all know that can’t happen.) A shop is never finished. Anyway, maybe I can graduate to making some fine woodworking, only time will tell.
