I have had several work shop assembly tables, and all of them have served me well. I currently have a HUGE assembly table that I love. However, while working with my friend Lindsay from @FrillsandDrills we decided she needed something space efficient, while still being “EXTRA”!
Current Out-Feed Table
As I said, my current assembly table was too big, but there were some great aspects that we both loved and wanted to keep.
Original Assembly Table
The more I thought on it, the more I realized that my first assembly table might be just the ticket. I never took the time to create build build plans. Which is ok, looking back there were many things I would have changed. (You can see a little more about my original assembly table here.)
The Perfect Fit
Lindsay and I put our heads together and combined our ideas and my previous assembly tables to create this beauty.
If you are interested in building your own, you are in luck! I have a full set of build plans complete with cut lists and diagrams.
This table was designed with a table saw that sat 25″ deep and 12 3/4″ tall. This table provides a great workspace and also serves as an outfield table. A simple hole cut into the table will allow access from the dust port to the shop vac stored below.
On the far side one the assembly table is plenty of open storage. This table was designed to store a shop vac. The shop vac will serve as dust collection when the table saw is in use. There is still plenty of additional space for shop storage as well.
There you have it folks, an assembly table that has all the storage while still catering to a modest size shop!
Thanks for following along.
