    Looks Good. I like the colors. What are the rails made out of?

    Thanks, rails are two layers of 5/4 x 14″ Finger Joint White Pine, ripped to 5″, laminated together and straight lined on the beam saw. However, I made them 4-1/4″ tall not thinking about the limit of the carriage. Had to route away a quarter on the bottom for clearance. The table is 1/2″ mdf top and bottom and 3/4″ mdf for the grid. The grid was half lapped on a radial arm with a dado set. It went together pretty quickly. The legs took a while though.

    Well, I cheated. I have a shop full of tools and since I’m the boss, I have time to work on what I want. Only advantage of getting older.

    I wanted it to look like something I bought. I’m building a new shop and it will be right beside the office.

    What a great table build!

    I am a little jealous of the shop too.

    Your minions wear red? I need to get me some of them.

    Awesome pics and videos, makes me want to clean up the “dirty” side of my shop.

    The phenolic sheet was indeed a USED bathroom divider about 5′ x 5′.  Amazon has a 4′ x 4′ x 1/2″ sheet for $864.00. I did clean it multiple times before even handling it. LOL. I planed a piece down to 1/4″ for the 611 plate. Very rigid.

    USED bathroom divider

    I know you cleaned it, but did you save any phone numbers? Jokes?

    Awesome job, like a previous poster noted – I too envy your shop! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the inspiration! I’m amazed what I can crank out on my “makeshift” table… that thing is going to be awesome!

    Also, thanks to your imagery, just realized I could run cables through the x-axis tubes. I have them plopped on my V-channel along with power cords and vacuum hose, but inside the tube looks like a better option!

    I was lusting over this table just last week on your youtube video, bravo, and thanks for the model, i’ll probably shamelessly copy it all!
