So I almost feel bad about posting this after several people commented on my last post ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96874 ) about insufficient space in their shops for even one large table…
But this is the shop at my work and we have the space and NEED the table space.
This is a 2.5’ x 5’ torsion box table on wheels. It is literally built the same way as it’s big brother in my last post, with the addition of wheels and the subtraction of the Shop-Vac cubby and table saw specific features.
I had a blast building it, and it’s already been so useful to roll around the shop. It was also much faster and easier to build than the first table because I already had a flat and true surface to assemble the torsion box on! The first few tasks I’ve put it through is carrying large amounts of wood (I’m working on a mass production project) between the chop saw, table saw, and assembly area. It’s worked well, but my only gripe is that at nearly 200 lbs empty, this table can be a little much to roll around full of materials. The 5” casters have worked great and have handled the fully loaded table even rolling over cords and hoses. Just wish I had a 3rd table on wheels without the weight of the torsion box! (I guess I shouldn’t be greedy…)
