Re: Canard Build table

I did 3' x 17'. The extra foot of particle board from the long sides of the 4x8 sheet went to tabletop for the last 1x3 section of the table, and the remaining 1x8 and 1x5 pieces make dandy shelves. The structure of the table is such that if I ever want to, I can cut in two places and have two 3x8 tables. Just add legs.

(I sure hope 3x17 is the right size...!)

My table is 24" X 16'. I like the width but if I had it to do over I'd make
it at least 17' long...........
I laid particle board over my old rotor blade table which is very stiff and
can be twisted with turn buckles to make it flat or with wash out. Put some
castors under it as well so you can push it to the side of the shop. When I
need a large surface - like for cutting fabric - I just drop a couple of
1/4" sheets of hardboard/Masonite on the floor. Other than that the 24"
width is fine for a general use work table.

Don't make it any wider than you can comfortably reach to the center of
while sanding, and keep it tall enough that you don't have to bend over.
I'm 5'6" and I like it 38" to 39" tall.
