Built my own MFT workbench
« on: November 03, 2018, 10:58 PM »
I made this using a Kreg frame and MDF top.  Its functional!  It's also the same height as my MFT/3 table making it even more versatile.  It rolls great on Home Depot casters.

Having both the MFT/3 and Kreg bench, do you prefer one over the other?  I made a similar Kreg MFT and was considering buying a MFT/3 for cutting and make my Kreg the assembly.  My Kreg now is both my cutting and assembly bench.

I honestly like the kreg more.  I was thinking about adding the festool tracks to use it as a cutting station

I like how it looks. Can you please tell me what size table that is? And is that the standard size MFT top that you have?

Thanks

Nice work! Looks the Kreg table has enough height adjustability to work as an outfeed table for my SawStop...I've been wanting an outfeed/assembly table with a MFT-like top.

Do you have anything between the top and shelf to catch dust?

Nice stuff...

Did you make the MFT top or have it CNC'd?
