Good day

I made this table for different purpose but, I will not tell you which one because you will laugh at me…..except Debbie…

But, while working on it in the garage, I thought that I can use it also as an adjustable height table for the Drill press, table saw, router table and alike to support long boards.

The base is two frames, M&T (made with the "rolling tenon jig" on the table saw), connected with bolts as an X…the top can be any plywood, melamine or whatever.

If I would make it for the shop, I would make it from more "massive" wood, say 2×4" and wider footprint so I can use it also as a low (or high) assembly table

I did not have intention to post it but then, I thought, maybe it will give somebody some ideas so, here it is.

Regards
niki

Yes, you are correct Robert

I did not think about it but now that you mentioned it, I will use a bar clamp or buy another clamp for it…I don't know but, I never have enough clamps… :)

Thanks for the Idea

Thank you so much for your kind words, it makes me to feel good that you could find some use of it.

Debbie
The original purpose was…..when I have to clean the tops in the bathroom, toilets or any other shelves, cabinets etc…(yes, it's my duty…but I like it), I like to remove all the "art collections" from the tops and "Schprits" (German for spray) everything, clean and return the "items" back after cleaning them one by one.

Here you can see the "dry section" of our bathroom (the "wet section" is in a separate room on the right and contains only bath tab and shower), I just remove everything to the "table" and clean…very easy…

That's the original planing, 4 hooks and small wheels on the legs

I just put the base on the floor…

Put the top and press down to "click" into the hooks

I'm planning to put also some shelf under (maybe for the cleaning stuff)

And screw some fences around so nothing will fall, in case I bang it…

So, I just roll it from one room to the other, clean and at the end, fold it out….or use it as tea trolly…:)

Very good Idea. If you don't mind as soon as I can get in the garage, and set up a work area I will try and make one. this seems like it should be a real handy table to make.

What is "Tchotchke"...it sounds like Polish but even my wife doesn't know this word (not that her Polish is something to be admired of)

It's Yiddish.
From Wikipedia:
tshotshke, tshatshke, tchatchke, chachke, or chochke) because there is no standardized transliteration] trinket), ultimately from a Slavic word for "toys" (Polish: cacka, Russian: цацки) are trinkets, small toys, knickknacks, baubles, or kitsch.
