This is the frame for my new Outfeed/Assembly Table for my Grizzly G0691. I’ll be finishing the top today and will post those pics when completed. It is constructed with glue/pocket screws And 16ga Finish nails shot with my finish gun to attach the bottom shelf to the frame, and it’s all done out of 3/4” hybrid MDF/plywood. It’s only a 7 ply with 5 of the 7 being real wood (not sure what species) and the other two being a layer of MDF on either side casing the wood. It seems to be quite stable and it was free which makes me like it that much more! I got 6 sheets of it given to me so I’ve been using it to outfit my shop with some new digs! I’m doing a torsion Box for the tabletop as well as the bottom shelf and where the actual tabletop will rest on the frame and be attached. Dimensions are 76”x33”x35” tall and will rest 1/8” below the tabletop of my saw/extension table. Forgive the unfinished under saw cabinet/storage, that will be next. Anyway, any comments/advice/suggestions are always appreciated! Thanks for looking! GO HAWKS!

I think it looks great so far. Might as well build as tough and flat as you can. I use my out feed table as an assembly table a lot of the time so it has to flat (ish).

Sorry it took so long to update this project I had an emergency knee surgery take place right after the last post so after sitting in the hospital for a week then recovery/physical therapy sessions I was finally able to get back to work on it and finish it today. I forgot to take photos of the webbing inside of the actual torsion box tabletop but you all know what that looks like anyway. It turned out as good or better than I hoped and sits completely flat which was the whole point of the design and my first project of building kitchen cabinets for a tiny home I’m doing at work will start today! Thanks all for looking and as always, I welcome any comments/suggestions.
