Project Description:
I had an old workbench that had a steel top so after watching Marc’s torsion box assembly table video, I decided to give building one a crack myself.

The box is primarily made from 1″ MDF and a hardboard layer on the top skin. I also put quite large dog holes to accommodate clamps so it would serve as a multi-function table also. I finished the edges with 1/2″ plywood which made it look great.
