See, as I moved into the house from a smaller apartment, and I was moving in by myself, I had an entire concrete floored sunroom that was just begging to be a shop of sorts. All it needed was every tool I could get my grubby hands on, and a centerpiece that held it all together.
So I turned to a book I found in my parents house. The Small Wood Shop, the Best of Fine Wood Working. Great book, has a lot of projects and skills and tips that you could apply to your own shop, or small auxiliary room that you can cut out for yourself from the rest of the house.
Anyway, the table legs and trestles are bolted, there isn't any glue on the table, and the "shelf" is just 1/2" strips of whatever was cheap at home depot.
Now, the book calls for a beautiful piece of butcher block as the top, with accessory holes drilled in it for jigs and things. It was great. I didn't do that. I used a nice piece of 7/8"great plywood. Most of my various bags of tools and hardware fits quite nicely below the table. I also added a vice (not shown) but the table was still missing something...
Next... Spring hits the Rowdy House.
