So my fist step is the basic table. Well that's where I choose to begin anyway. I drew up plans for a beefy workbench type design. That seems reasonable. Along the way I stumbled across a Guerrilla system made for heavy modular storage solutions.
It's very nice. They claim each rack can hold up to 2200 lbs. I think that should do. I don't weld...yet.. so this took care of all that building of a table frame PLUS allows me to easily take it apart and move.
There are a few sizes to choose from. You pick the ends then the length of the rails. I went with the 30" ends and 4' sides. My goal is to have a table big enough to route a guitar body and then some. The rails have inlays for pre-cut Particle Board shelving inserts. Since they were pre-cut, perfect size and $2.99/pc why not grab a few of those too. Nice.
So far I have a table without cutting a thing.
Other things I picked up:
- Leveling 'feet'
- Some MDF (pre-cut at home center (2) 3'x4') + scrap
- A Few 2x4x6'
- And some select grade 1x4x6'
- (200) 1/4" #20 2" Machine screws + Washers + nuts
