Good score, Shelly.

My outfeed table’s extent (from saw on out) was driven by 10’ boards which I typically buy and use. So I can rip a ten footer and it won’t fall off the table. I couldn’t see any value beyond that.

I torsion box is a bit grand. All you need is a relatively flat surface, and Melamine is a great choice. It will hold up a long time, clean up nicely, etc. etc.

It looks like the desks will dismantle nicely. I would see what happens when several of the desk pedestals were ganged together.

The top of mine is adjustable, but not as simply as I’d do it this time.

I am imagining a top-on-frame that has 5/16 teenuts in the bottom of it and bolts that are located in the structure below. Tweaking the bolts would allow you to level the outfield (sorry, couldn’t resist the sports reference with included pun) as needed.
