Not too much different from others that have been posted. The top was purchased. I am not proud of that, but I just wanted this table functional asap, so that seemed like the way to go. There is storage on each side. The fence is the Incra Super System. So far I like that a lot, but I am still learning. The dust exhausts through the left side. The carcase and drawers are made from many different woods. Since this was a shop project it was a good opportunity to use up some scraps.

Hi. I’m going to be building a similar cabinet. Could you share the top and cabinet dimensions? Thanks.

Don’t worry about purchasing the top. Most people do that and its a sensible way to go. You are really going to enjoy using this.

-- Happy woodworking!

Very nice and smart way to go with the purchased top. Who’s top did you purchase? Did you design the cabinet or our there plans available?

The top was purchased from Woodpeckers. It is the 27×43 offset, and is precut for a lift or insert. Here is the site:

The table height is 43 inches off the ground, including the casters. (Lee valley had some reasonably priced rubber casters. The poly-u casters at homedepot were too slippery, and rockler’s casters got horrible reviews) 43 inches may be high for most people. I am 6 feet tall and like the work a bit high.

The carcase is 23×39 which allows an overhang on the table in case something needs to be clamped to it.
