  • Assembly Table

    My assembly table as of now consists of two workbenches bolted together which gives me a top working area of 4 ½ feet long by 42 inches wide.

    I would like to extend the length by about another 2 ½ feet and want to have that portion hinged to the existing table with folding legs so that it can hang out of place when not needed – like most everyone my workshop space is at a premium.

    Question, do I fabricate the top with a torsion box design using plywood to keep the weight down or should I take the simple route and just use a sheet of melamine or something similar. Concerning the latter, I’m leery that in time it will sag/warp.

    If I go the torsion box way and sandwich a couple of pieces of plywood together, what thickness of plywood can I get by with?
