Top is a piece of old countertop with a frame built underneath from 2×4s. Legs are 1×4’s screwed together. Bottom shelf sits on 2×4 stretchers. The bottom shelf is the top of an old coffee table I built years ago and tore back apart recently. When I’m not using the sanders I’m gonna keep them on the shelf to use the table for glue ups and assembly. Thanks for looking.

Sweet. The glue drips should wipe up easily on the Formica.

Hey, those look like bessey clamps? I was thinking about buying a few, they just seem so expensive – do you like/prefer them over others? Thanks.

Jay, I definetly prefer them over others. I have not used jorgenson’s so I cant compare to them, but these are so much better than any cheaper clamps. I have the old and new style (2nd picture) of Bessies and I like the newer ones better. They have a better grip on the handle and more torque.
