Just adding some completed projects. This is my Torsion Box assembly table. I saw this table originally some time ago on the Wood Works show on DIY by the master, David Marks. Always wanted to put it together, then came across Marc Spagnuolo and The Wood Whisperer – Marc did a fantastic build through on the table and a cabinet type base. After watching that 2 or 3 times, it HAD TO HAPPEN LOL! Again, some fantastic inspiration from David Marks and then same with Marc along with his highly engaged video series made this a great project. It is a tank – I chose to use 3/4 MDF doubled up on top and bottom, with 3/4 MDF struts or supports. I used doubled up 2×6’s glued and joined down to 3×5 for legs and 2×8 as stretchers. Went on to follow Marc’s advice and placed a replaceable top – 1/4 hardboard wrapped in Oak. Solid, straight – made an immediate impact in projects – really – no reason for me to sell the benefits except that is was immediate! So if you have the means – do yourself a favor – I have attached TWW website link if you are unfamiliar and you can see the volume of learning available including the 2 part series on this very table.
Good luck, if I can help or offer any other info – don’t hesitate to hit me up!
