Hi everyone,

Here is the sketch of my Assembly table’s Top.


As you can see, it will be an hybrid top: maple top with 2 visses combined with a standard torsion box.

P.S. this is my fist try as a blog entry so….....

-- Enjoy life !!

should work well. When you use it as a workbench though, you will have to flip the stock to get to the other side of your piece.

This will make a nice assembly table. You can work on some large projects on it.

Should be a very a stable table!

The point made about the width is a good one, but even with a narrow bench, I still end up walking around it fairly often.

Nice idea!!! Personally I use a 36”x84” hollow-core door on the top of my workbench for assembly and it stores neatly with my stored plywood .
