I went for the 2 for 1 Kreg table deal. Very nice and sturdy tables! Quality Kreg stuff of course. I decided to use one for my out feed table. It’s much stronger than what I had made before. I’m very impressed. I’ll probably make a cabinet in it also.

Peachtree woodworking supply. I like Kreg too. I have a few of their products. All great stuff.

These are very nice and can be used for a variety of purposes. They’re good quality and will make a nice addition to your shop.

I got a pair from Peachtree as well, along with 4 sets of their casters—at $10 a wheel they’re less than the red phenolic plate casters I usually get, and really nice. Am in the midst of a table build, so once I assembled the stands, I screwed 3 8 foot 1×4’s to them to tie them together, threw a sheet of OSB on top of that, and proceeded to lay out the 5” wide boards for a 40” x 106” table top. Rolls around unbelievably easy. Timing was perfect for much needed temporary space.

My more permanent thought is to use one for an outfeed for TS, set another to the height of my RAS on the left side. There are so many ways they could be used, I may try to keep the top surface (whatever I end up doing) kind of easy to change/remove. Nice stuff.

I’ve started enclosing the stand. I just need to make a couple of doors now.

These came at the right time. 2 Kreg stands with casters, strung together with 3 1×6’s. Table top glue up, 112” x 40” x 1 1/2” thick. Dozen pipe clamps and 3 sets of cauls. Wheels locked and it didn’t move a bit. Unlock them and it moves any direction with one hand. This was a blessing yesterday!!

Thanks Chuck. I like the look of the enclosure, and will consider it. One of my stands will get the Kreg assembly top that is on the end of my work bench now. But…during the course of this table build, I’ve clamped si many parts to the 1 by’s that I may keep one open just for that use. When routing the spline grooves, a pair of quick clamps held each board in place—quick change. And another pair of clamps held a plywood scrap that served as a place to set the router. After routing the first one—and having the cord and hose get hung up—I flipped the plywood clamps so the beams pointed up and served to guide the hose and cord.

I think a large lower shelf would be excellent and really tie the two tables together while giving you a ton of storage space.
