Cutting/work table
« on: August 01, 2013, 11:41 PM »
Thought I would post up some pics of my cutting table. It is all assembled with half laps so it breaks down real quick.

Can you post pics of it broken-down? Is it meant to be moved from job to job?  Regardless, it looks great. I'm looking to build portable job site table and can't decide on design. Are you happy with its stability? Sorry all the questions, david

Thanks guys! I did steal the basic design from another one I saw and then made quite a few enhancements. It is meant to break down and move from shop to the job site. I can take a picture the next time I break it down.

 I used two sheets of 3/4" luan plywood. It's assembled width is 4' x 8'.  I made a quick jig to route the half laps all the same. This way all the pieces are interchangeable. I made the height match my portable table saw on its stand, so it can double as an out-feed table.

It can hold a ton of weight and it is fairly stable. The half laps are snug but not tight. This does allow for a little "sway" lengthwise, but nothing major.

Yep. Used a 3/8" bit to route the groove and then a quick cleanup with the trion. Hit everything with a quick 1/8" roundover and a sander.

This is great! I have been trying to come up with an idea for a cutting table for 2 days and none of them suited me and a couple others I saw on this site I did not really like. This one is perfect for me.  I might get a friend with a CNC machine to cut one out for me because it does those joints with no slop at all and I don't want to dissemble mine. Thanks.

Thanks a lot! If you don't want to break it down, then just use some pocket screws to hold it all tight. I will also put a sheet of Dow down first and then put on my sheet goods to get premium dust collection and prevent scratching if it's pre-finished goods.

By Dow you mean the foamboard? How does that hold up to the saw kerfs. The ply I am cutting is $70 a sheet so scratching it is an issue. Up to now I have been sawing on 2 x 4's across horses and I always have to re-position them according to what cut I am making and with your table it looks like any cut on a 4 x 8 sheet would not pinch the blade or fall in the floor.

Exactly why I built it. No pinch points and no moving the sheet around. The Dow is the pink or blue or green Styrofoam.  The white stuff isn't a good idea (it low density). If your blade is set correct, one sheet last a while.

I used 2 - 4x8 sheets of plywood . It works out to be right about 16" and half of that for the overlap . The ends you can make what ever height you want , mine are 37" to match all the tops in my shop .  I just layed everything out on 4x8 sheet of white hardboard . Then transferred all my measurements over to the actual plywood I was using .

The table design is solid as a rock. Theres no movement in any direction. The joints are what makes this so solid , keep them tight with no slop and you'll be fine . To help it go together easier , just wax the joints up with furniture wax .

My lap joints are a touch bit loose. I do not have very much play or sway in the setup. I have had ours at our current job for the last few weeks and it has been great. We keep a piece of 1" Dow on it now to cut on for better dust collection. Also, like any flat surface on a job, it makes a great work table in general. We also had a large project to do that required us to site cut a bunch of ACM panels. This was perfect to break down, transport, and use on the road.

Do the looser joints cause any issues, like table wobbling or whatever? Or asked another way - would you build it the same way (loose joints) if you made another one?

I did not see the questions until now. Sorry for the delay.

Bryan, thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it.

The feet are HDPE, I chose the product for the feet because I plan to use this as an easy to transport field table. No qualms about setting it up in a dew soaked lawn this time of year. They are attached with 2- 5 mm Dominos in each of the feet.

Over, it does wobble slightly. The ease of assembly and disassembly make it worth the slight wobble. I wouldn't hand plane on it but every other operation the table has performed very well.

A side benefit of the height of the stretchers is my clamps work with them.

If you ever want some more sturdy stools for that let me know. I've got a pair of hardly used Toughbuilt ones. They're metal but have that same 4x2 hook on the ends. I'm looking to sell them as I bought the dewalt horses.

Thanks @joiner1970
I did look at them but decided i didn't really need them.
This is actually extremely sturdy  [big grin]

I'd take £50 for them if you change your mind. Theyre almost like new as I haven't really used them. I was buying the dewalt ones and saw these half the price of the dewalt ones. Then ended up buying the dewalt anyway.

Thanks for the pic @joiner1970 .
To be honest I really don't need them as I'm quite happy with the Stanley/DeWalt ones.
Bang them in the classifieds? or maybe UKW classifieds if your on there?
Cheers

We still use this table a ton for shop work and on site fabrication. I have started to call it my VFT table (VariableFunctionTable). Thanks again to all my FOG friends who have bought the plans and let me know how they liked it!

Having a 4x4 MFT style top has been awesome too.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Build a smaller variant of the table with scrap wood lying around.

Also functions nice as a base for the DIY table saw / working area!
