I routinely work with large table tops – 3’ x 9’ and larger – so I found myself in need of a sturdy work surface.
I came up with this monster. The legs and stretchers are 8/4 white oak with the legs being 2 pieces laminated together. The top is 1 1/2” butcher block ash.
Even with being this massive – 52” across, 102” long, I have it anchored to the floor to keep it from tipping when I have a huge tabletop hanging off of it.
The stretchers are tenoned into the legs and then lag screwed.
I sealed the whole thing with tung oil. I keep the top waxed to make sliding heavy tops around easier and to keep glue from sticking.
