no previous part Part 1 of Assembly Table series Part 2: Downdraft insert »

Prior to upgrading my Tablesaw with an outfeed table I used my assembly table with some bench cookies on risers to cut large sheet stock. [I still use it till I build and infeed table for cutting plywood long ways]. However, the assembly table was designed to do more than that. With t-tacks around the perimeter and in the middle, the table acts like a hold-down system for my dovetail, Kreg, and conceal hinge jigs. The tie-down steady large pieces for assembly. I’ve used it with great success on my Ultimate China Cabinet project—on hold till I finish a Goat Barn this month.

In planning are additional jigs to square up face frames; some side mounted t-tracks; and three more t-tracks running lengthwise and widthwise; some additional adjustable tie-downs. I guess my shop will always be evolving.

Thanks Drew! Watched you remodel show tonight. I’m lucky? Just move everything to one side of barn—can only use half of barn for shop—

Came up with an idea kind of a merge of stumpy nubs and Rock-n. An ultimate sanding cart/table. When I sketch it out ill post it in the blog. Thx again
