I will not prove you wrong.
I opened one of the tables up and shook it, just to see how much movement there would be....
...I would lose a finger.
So, now I'm just gonna make one. So, how big of a top would I need? I do have an old piece of a MDF countertop that was once mounted in the garage. It's 2'x2', roughly. I feel like that may not be big enough.
Glad to hear this....think you are right..accident waiting to happen....let me know how it turns out
Any bench or platform for hand or power tool work needs to be as stable as possible, the only difference is that with power tools, when it moves you lose more wood or fingers.
So, I don't necessarily have to buy a mounting plate.
Now I just have to decide if my 2'x2' MDF counter top is large enough (Though I'd like to remove the back panel of it...the part that would be a backsplash if it were an actual counter).
