    Flip Top Tool Table - Performax Drum Sander

    Well finally got around to making one of the flip top tables that I've been talking about. It's not pretty, and the warped plywood didn't make things any easier, but at least it's functional and I learned some things I'd do different on the next one. I'd call it a prototype, but It seems to do it's job well enough that I'll probably just keep it and let it do what it was meant to do...


    Setup with the drawer showing the storage. The rectangular cutout was due to a miscalculation on the height of the table. The casters ended up being just a bit taller than I expected, so I had to cut the sides down a little bit meaning the amount of 'upside down' clearance was reduced...

    Tucked away in it's little 'garage space'. The flip top table for the drum sander is next on the agenda.

    Very slick, Brent. Ive got a few tools that could use that sort of stand, although it'd take some remodeling to make storage room under my shop table (too low to call it a bench).

    I don't care what Sharon says, you do good work.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
