This is my version of a torsion box assembly table, I incorporated in full extension ball bearing sliding drawer that hold my Festool sustainers.

I used 3/4” Trupan MDF for my torsion box, Trupan is 30% lighter than regular MDF from your big box stores. The carcass is made from 3/4” Baltic Birch ply and all the edge banding is Walnut. I also have a torsion box bottom to help hold the heavy load from all the weight.

Hope enjoy!

What they said Lance…...really fine work. You’re shop is really shaping up nicely. A little TOO clean tho!

BTW – I noticed the casters, I have those on my workbench and router table. They are super nice but really spendy! I got mine free, otherwise I’m too cheap…....

I got mine from Woodcraft, there made by a couple different companies now, not the cheapest casters either.

Really nice assembly table, not to mention a great place to store those tools
