I needed an outfeed table and wanted it to double as an assembly table/workbench. The top is a torsion box made out of MDF with the standard honeycomb type internal construction. I put a sheet of birch ply on top (it had been in my shop forever) and wrapped the edges with ambrosia maple. I also ran a walnut inlay strip around the top and used it for the miter slots. I have always wanted to try T channels in the top of a workbench for holdfasts and jigs, so I decided to put some Kreg T track in the top too.
The legs are made from reclaimed oak barnwood that I picked up locally from an old barn that was torn down (with permission and some cash). I used through tenons with walnut wedges for the stretchers and pegged tenons for the feet. I installed some threaded inserts in top stretchers so I could use bolts to level the top.
I finished it with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. I am really happy with the way it turned out and it is solid as a rock.
