How to Build a Folding Workshop Table with 3 Tops: Router Table, Down-Draft Sanding Table, General Work Table
by Mark Stephens | April 12th, 2013
Every month we host a free woodworking demonstration at our stores, and each one is taught by our esteemed demo man, Joe. Due to the nature of his “traveling woodworking show,” he built this fold down table that does a few cool things:
Easy to store and set up
Sturdy enough for many woodworking operations like routing and assembly
Table top changes out for special applications: router table, down-draft sanding table, general purpose work table.
The quick video above shows how it works. Is it a robust workbench? Obviously not. However, it is a handy table that can serve a number of purposes for you in your own shop.
Joe pieced together sketches and a parts/materials list you can download and use for making your own table.
