Default My new table.

I got a hold of a sheet of Racket ball court wallboard.
It is 1 1/4' thick with smooth white fiberglass material on both sides.
It is very heavy too Ouch my aching back.
I am going to use it for table top and maybe new radial arms saw table too.
I ordered a plate from Samona and will make fences as I see on Router Workshop shows.
Will post some pics when it is operational.

Well I finnally got started on my new table.
I cut the big heavy sheet down a bit with skilsaw.
Then routed a nice straight edge to work from.
Hoisted it up to table saw and cut it to size.
I was going to go 36x28 but it seemed to big so I settled on
34x24.
I cut a couple pieces to make some fences with, one for length wise and
and one for crosswise like on Router Workshop.
Today I am going to trim edges with pine and top fences with pine also.
Just have to wait for plate to come in and top will be finished.
Might start base today with the orange plywood in the background.
I think I will use pegboard on the back for ventilation.
Any thoughts will be welcome.
Bernie

I think you will find that your top size is bigger than is comfortable to work at. 30" x 22" is a common size. Not saying there is anything wrong with having a larger top, only you will know what is right for you.

Thanks Mike. I thought the top was to big at 36x28 so I reduced it to the current size.
You might be right though.
I will set up so I can use it a few times then decide if it needs to be smaller or leave it.
Here are a couple pics of the cabinet mock up.
I might set the plate off to one side a bit so I can have some drawers to put clamps and things in.
