How to Build a Work Table

Step 1: Frame

Construct a top and bottom frame out of 2x4s, then cut 4x4 posts to a desired height. To assemble the table, attach the posts to the inside corners of the top frame. To make the bottom shelf sturdy, install 2x4 blocks and attach the remaining frame on top, followed by a piece of plywood cut to size.


Step 2: Pop-Up Table

To construct the pop-up table, first cut a base out of plywood and attach it to the inside back with hinges, then attach brackets for the supports to rest on. After the saw is bolted onto the pop-up table, it’s on to the cutout for the top of the worktable. After the plywood top is cut to size, the easiest way to make a square cut-out is to start with a plunge cut and finish it off with a jigsaw.
