A shortcomings of the foster workbench is that the holes in the top prevents you from doing fine intricate work like installing hinges or other fine work, with small parts.
To overcome this deficiency I decided to build a tray out of maple plywood with a rim to corral any parts that may try to run away from you. The front edge of the tray is open going up but does have a lower lip going down to catch on the front edge of the foster workbench.
The tray can also be raised up on blocks, to do work with clamps from underneath, as shown in the next to last picture, where I am marking and measuring doors for a cabinet.
The last picture shows the Alvin marquetry cutting pad, with tools for cutting veneer.
