I was inspired to post this review after seeing Groovemadman’s very slick project post of a knock down sawhorse/bench ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/5298 ).
This table is just a Lifetime brand 2’x4’ folding plastic table that I bought at Sam’s. It is very portable, easy to store, reasonably rugged, and just a little wobbly along the 4’ side. And, of course, useful for everything a table is useful for. But here’s the real trick for me. This table is adjustable to four different heights, including 36”, which is the height of my tablesaw. So with one table in front, and one in back, I can cut a 4’x’8’ sheet of plywood, or make a long rip cut, without help. Or I can set one table beside the saw to support really long crosscut pieces or my panel-cutting jig. I use the lower heights for finishing or holding my planer. It wasn’t exactly cheap at $40, but as I said, it comes ready-made and is good for plenty of non-woodworking projects too.
