After getting the two pieces of what would become the frame for the top glued up I loaded up my router into a homemade trammel to cut the final shape.

I figured someone might catch those ;) As you might be able to tell from the picutres, one of the “works in progress” here is finishing the basement that will include a new and improved workshop. So in the mean time most of the big stuff, like assembly tables, is out in the garage so I’ve got room to work on the basement. The tables you see in the pictures I picked up at home depot a long time ago. The tops pop off and they fold up and store quite nicely. I usually bring those with me when I’m working at a job site. The tops are plastic and the legs are aluminum so they’re light but when you put them together they are actually pretty sturdy. I’ve used them to cut counter tops and had everything from compound miter saws to portable router tables clamped to them and don’t have any complaints. I don’t think I would dance on them but for the price (I think I paid $30-$40 a peice) I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of them.
