While I don’t think that this is a one of a kind design, I haven’t seen it before and this is something I thought up in about 30 min. I had 8 pieces of 3/4” plywood that were already cut 24” x 35” and a full sheet to work with so using that I wanted something where I could lay wide, rough cut boards and also stand my cutoff so they didn’t get lost on the bottom of a 55 gal trash bin… anymore. It took about 2-1/2 hours to make and I think it was well worth it. Hope some of you guys can use the design for your own shops.

I moved this pic down because it was driving me crazy oriented sideways

That’s a very clever solution. I may copy your idea for my shop. I really like the design.

What an awesome idea! I too may borrow that for my shop. My current solution looks just like your last photo.

Oh, and I just noticed by visiting you blog… Thank you for your service and sacrifice for your country and all of us!

Hi Dan. Nice job. It’s tough to see the joinery in the pics. Is the plywood just butted or are there dados?

Thanks guys. Glad some of you can use the design.

@JRAP – it’s all butted. I don’t have any power tools and I just wanted something quick and usable. It would definitely benefit from dados for added strength and easier assembly but the fact that it’s still standing after I put the wood in was good enough for me!
