Here is my latest project. I took the design from the Wood Whisperer and then added a little twist. I put it on casters and made just the right height so it would work as an outfeed table for my table saw. The top is a torsion box made with 3/4” MDF. This table not only has a great amount of shop storage, but it gives me an outfeed table/assembly table/workbench.

Very nicely done. Having a work surface that large will be very handy I’m sure!

Great shop project, functional and very nicely done.
Now you have more additional hidden storage – frequent you shop time or you may forget you have many good tools to use.

Well done. Nothing like multi-purpose projects. Storage, workbench, outfeed – great planning.

Mike – incredible work table. I wish we could have spent more time together on projects together while I was still in NC. I can’t wait to see the many things you will create on this table. Daily Top 3 on Lumberjocks!! Awesome!!
