Not much of a project but a BIG improvement over the old countertop on top of 2 sawhorses. I never could get to the sawhorses when I needed them, it was too narrow, and weighed too much. This one is 4’x6’, made of free shiplap my neighbor gave me, and covered with 1/2” MDF. 5 coats of some very old Polycrylic. Iwas suprised how stable it is (no Wobble) and no bow in the top. It’s tall enough that the trash can and the sawhorses store under it. I found this design on LJ and favorited it a long time ago. VERY quick (Less than an hour) and simple to build. Thanks again LJ!

Grizz, No hinges on a table BUT as soon as the finish is cured I have another wooden hinge to post. I pirated this one from David (patron).

Looks like it will be a useful and well utilized table Andy. I find that when I built worktable for my shop it immediately attracted all sorts of tools…Hardest part is to keep it clear of clutter.

Another tell tale sign of proper ownership…..he made it from hand me downs. No new purchases. Good project and you will love using it. Thanks for sharing.

Looks good. I need something like this but just don’t have the room.

How long should I wait on thet Polycrylic to cure before I drip glue and stain on it? (and expect it to come off and not take the Polycrylic with it)
