    Work table

    For this week i decided to design and make a standing work table for the fablab

    At first I did a sketch on my Ipad.

    This table is designed for a CNC machine and without any additional components like screws and bolts.

    Here we can see the dimensions of the table that I designed in Rhino

    I decided to make the table in 30mm Birch Plywood

    I used joinery splits on the ends to make the table more sturdy

    Left click and hold to move the table. Double click for full screen.

    And here you can see how the table is put together

    Preparing the file for CNC Machining

    Next step is to arrange the parts so they will fit on the Plywood 30mm plate 2440mm x 1220mm
