    Just seen this work table on a Youtube channel . Screwfix also do a version. It's like a magicians table :blue thumb: Pity I don't really have a use for one.

      It looks ok but I would add a few modifications.

      1. Add adjustable feet to the legs like on cookers and washing machines to prevent wobbling on uneven floors;

      2. Add mounts holes onto the table so that you could clip-on or bolt-on power tools. For example, a jigsaw mounted upside down with a long blade supported with a small attachment will give you a useful table saw;

      3. Add tape measuring marks onto the table edges so that you could quickly check the length of your work pieces;

      4. Add storage compartments for a brush to dust it off after use and for other items such as screws, nails and maybe small hand tools.

        It is very clever but it looks too wobbly for sawing - on the plus side its light and easy to carry and set up.
