Torsion Boxes Overrated? – My New BIG Assembly Table

This large assembly table is a great inexpensive alternative to the long and cumbersome process of building a torsion box.

This is my new assembly table. Made from construction grade 2×4’s, 2×6’s, plywood, and laminate. If you want to save some extra money, you can make the top from a sheet of melamine and end up with he same spill-proof surface. The table features a bunch of storage with the option to customize it however you like.

While I played a big role in popularizing torsion boxes with my early videos, I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re overkill for woodworkers. So I’m keeping mine simple.
