Assembly Table

Today I had some extra time and scrap MDF; what does this mean? Torsion box assembly table! This torsion box is only 24"x36"x2 1/2"- though a flat surface this small could have been more easily achieved by laminating some sheet good together, I wanted to try my hand at this design. Using stop blocks and spacers made everything fit together tight and square. I mounted a clamp in the table (left side to suit the needs of a lefty) and wrapped the outside in some cherry I had around the shop. All in all, I'm happy with the way it came out. For the time being it will sit on saw horses; the final height is still to be determined.
