The first build in my newly acquired basement shop. I figured I’d start with a butcher block top assembly table to be the center piece of the shop set up process. It was quick and simple and now I can move on to getting my new dungeon shop set up!

Great start! Be patient and build your shop with actual tools and cabinets needed. Good luck and have fun!!!

Charlie, I like the table you have built and will use the router jig you made for leveling the top. Great idea. Thanks for the post.

Very nice….If I can give a little input, my secondary workbench is a lamination like yours and it took a few months to fully settle to my shop. I flattened it 3 times and now it seems to be pretty stable.
I would straight edge it often for a while just to make sure it stays flat.
Because the last thing you want in an assembly table is unevenness. Router sled all the way :)

That will be a great assembly table and a nice addition to your shop.
