Just finished this assembly table.

Top: 36” x 84”
Height: 35”
Cost: about $150
Features: Laminate top, All plywood construction, Levelers

This table will eventually become the out feed table for my cabinet saw. For now it is my assembly table. The top is flat.

Hi Dave,

Nice project and very useful as well. It serves a dual purpose as an outfeed table and an assembly table. I like the addition of the levelers.

How thick is the top of the table?

Top is 3/4” – When I get around to building my real assembly table, I build a torsion box for the top.

Heh…Tyler stole my comment. Great job. I’d love one of these if I had the extra space.

Nice table Dave! I like the levelers. Charlie and Tyler: Checkout the Knockdown sawhorse bench I made, it is great for guys like us who are short on space. I use mine all the time and it stores away in less than a minute! It is so easy to build a monkey could do it using just a chisel!!

Nice able Dave – I like everything about it – but like Tyler and Charlie, I wish I had the space to put one.

Did you laminate it after the photos? It looks like bare wood. I mounted hard board followed by 10 coats of thin clear gloss poly on mine to facilitate easy repairs to scratches and to make it an easy build. I wish I had laminated mine. It’s so much better of a surface for an outfeed table, but for an assembly table I would feel anxious about drips from glue ups and finishes. It’s a good table anyway.

Nice, sturdy and well planned. I am curious to the materials for the legs and stretchers – dimensional lumber?

It’s laminated in the pics. The laminate is a wood color marble I picked up at Lowes. I thought about using hardwood but then I decided I’d never replace the top once I had put it in place. It’s not very difficult to get glue off laminates and I can always cover in paper if the job is going to be messy.

Legs are plywood. I just glued two pieces together to add strength.
