First let me thank Alex Harris “ThisWoodwork” for his video on YouTube. A lot of the ideas for this table came from his design.

This is my version of it and so far I am very pleased with it. It was all made from material that I had on hand – including the knobs which I picked up a bunch from Grizzly for $0.25 each.

The third picture shows some of the accessories I made for it, including a shorter fence and some wedges that side into groves on the bottom of the table (4th picture) which let’s me tilt it from back to front. With this, I was able to drill nice consistent 11 degree holes for hanging my wrenches. With the markings right on the table, I was able to do this with no measuring and took me about a minute each. Maybe I should mass produce them :-)
