If your workbench and table saw too often serve as the place you glue up frames, boxes, and other small to medium projects, why not free them up with a dedicated assembly surface? This mobile table, made from two ¾"-thick sheets of MDF and maple trim, provides assembly surfaces in three sizes, with the largest measuring 36 × 51" when both drop leaves are raised. A scissor jack cleverly mounted inside (see Figure 3 on page 23), along with four star knobs, lets you lock in the desired working height from 24" to 36". This adjustable feature also allows the project to function as a precision outfeed table or benchtop power tool stand. When not in use, drop the leaves and roll the table against the wall or below a table saw wing. Note: See the Convenience-Plus Buying Guide on page 26 for the products used in this story. You’ll certainly want the jack on hand during construction.
