I threw this table together for some additional work space. The basic table can be made with one sheet of 3/4 plywood. This version can be made with one sheet 3/4 ply, 1 sheet of 7/16 OSB and most of 1 sheet of 1/8 hardboard. I wrapped the edges with some leftover oak.
The top is 36in by 60in. The height is matched to my table saw and other work bench. I added a cap on the stretchers to make the bottom shelf and a bottom on both the top and shelf to form torsion boxes. This makes the table a little heavy for easy movement but incredibly stout for the amount of material involved. I did not glue either side of the top so I can change the top if I damage it too bad or want a different size. It is held on with a number of pocket screws. The hardboard is just screwed on so it is sacrificial. It also makes glue clean up easy. I chamfered the edges just to make splintering less likely and sliding pieces on a little easier.
Thanks for looking, it was a quick fun little project.
Tried rotating the second photo in the pics file but it transferred sideways. Too bad, I’ve got to figure out how to modify pic orientation. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
