My benches are all small 4-5 ft long, l needed a big assembly table mainly because l make allot of shelves, book cases between 20’’ and 36’’ wide x 6-7 ft high.
And my aim this week is to drill holes to put dowels in across the width of the table at 20, 24, 30, 36 inch intervals to hold sides of shelves, book cases up as i assemble them this will be a tight fit and will place length of the table every 12’’ for sturdy support while assembling shelves etc.
My assembly table is 4’ x 8’ ft, 34 1/2 inches high so for now also works as outfeed table for my table saw. Legs are 2’’ x 4’’s doubled up 3 inch deck screws 4 from each side top has cross braces 2’’ x4’’s every 14’’ full 8 ft length.
since pictures were took l made a temp, shelf below full length to store disc/belt sanding unit, and 5, 6 large tool boxes, other sanding machine, jigs.
Will in time make a bank of drawers 3 high on each end and both sides for total of 12 drawers and open space in the middle with peg boards on each end 3×3 ft to hang squares etc.
Will soon post shortly my lumber rack from floor to ceiling 6 ft high x 4 ft wide and 8 ft long left lowest shelf 6-8 inches off floor incase sump pump fails it is very solid lumber rack all 2×4’s.
coming soon shop cabinets once caught up on personal projects and 4-5 for paying customers.
