This table measures 3’6×5’1. I used 3 sheets of 3/4 baltic ply, some scrap walnut for the edges, a sheet of laminate and leg levellers. I also used some scrap walnut for the miter sled holder on the side. It is very heavy and solid.
The bottom shelf is higher than my dust port so if I ever get around to installing a dust collection system it will not be a problem. The extra storage is nice and i liked the idea of having a dedicated spot for my miter sled. I intend to make some kind of holder on the other side for my crosscut sled. I normally keep it on the saw but it would be nice to have a place to put it when i dont need it. Im also thinking about installing a power strip somewhere underneath the table because the table doubles as a work surface.
The downside to this project: I spent alot more time and alot more money than I had intended.
Overall, i think it will make my time in the shop more enjoyable and take some of the stress out of cutting sheet goods and longer pieces.
thanks for looking
