This replaces my previous outfeed table. Marc Spagnuolo’s torsion box assembly table inspired me for this project. I also wanted to have the Kreg Klamp table concept integrated with this as well, as a flat surface is key for both. After using my other outfeed table as both a table saw cover and outfeed table, I came to the conclusion that it was too heavy to move around and also not as flat as I wanted it to be for assembly purposes. The torsion box top is basically Marc’s design (inspired by David Marks). The only change is the top, as the first layer on top of the torsion “honeycomb” is 3/4 Baltic Birch, followed by the Kreg Klamp Traks and the 3/4 MDF. it’s a very heavy top, supported by a cabinet that utilizes 8 of Rockler’s heavy duty levelers which are awesome by the way. I did the rest of the cabinet in a Euro frameless style using undermount drawer slides and Euro hinges for the cabinet doors. I used my new Peachtree dovetail jig for the drawers just to try it out and it was great, all three drawers turned out perfectly square. I realize the inconsistency of style with dovetails and Euro style drawers, but these are shop cabinets and I used this as a learning experience and practice for myself. If you have any questions, please ask!

Now that’s a very nice combo table. I’ve been thinking of something similar but just have to many other things that I need to build first.

This came out great, I’ve been wanting to make something like this but alas I am just about out of shop space, I will just live vicariously through yours :)

The next time I rebuild my out feed I am hoping to something like this. Nice ideas and put together well.

Nice to see some of Peachtree’s stuff here. I am lucky enough I pass there store almost every day at lunch. Great people.

Very nice Multi use table.

Chris K , I am not so sure it is Lucky for for a woodworker to pass by the Peachtree Store every day, sounds more expensive to me. :)
