This is another option: Grizzly Table Leg System made out of steel. Add a maple butcher block top & you've got the whole deal for around $400.

The lower shelf on the leg system makes it easy to add sandbags or other weight to it. You want the base to be as stiff and heavy as you can - you'd be surprised how that little machine can make light/flimsy tables sway and do the Watusi...and you definitely do not want that!

I too built one based on Mick Martinís table. The drawers are full depth and come in very handy. I plan on building an enclosed cabinet under the control cabinet to house the computer.

Mike, your table is very nice, great job. How do you get underneath to do your maintenance or repairs if needed?

Thank you Keith.

For general maintenance (greasing and cleaning) of Y-Axis I roll the unit away from the wall and find that the space between the table top and frame rail is sufficient. For all other repairs, I remove the spoil board(s). They are all screwed down. The phenolic top as originally shipped was screwed down with 1/4-20 self tapping screws into the frame. These tend to fail after a few installs so I drilled them out and pressed 1/4-20 threaded inserts.

Also, I plan on doing some dovetail work with the boards positioned upright so I notched the top and will make a quick clamp fixture that mounts to the existing spoil board and both squares and clamps the boards in place. Essentially the board will slide down between the frame side rail and the indexing lathe.

Mike

Default Stinger I Table

My Stinger I table is still a work in progress after finishing the basement so I could have my shop space. I used a couple of adjustable metal table bases (found on Craigslist for $50) for my structural support. The rest is Baltic birch. I left a large open cabinet in the rear for access to the bottom of the gantry. I will keep plastic totes inside the cabinet until I need access. I still have to make doors and I still have to finish my vacuum table that will use two Fein shop vacs. I still have work to do but I'm getting very close!

That is a sweet looking table, Mike. The drawers are especially nice. Not sure which Im more jealous of...the table or the stack of Festool systainers next to it!

Thumbs up

Mike, apparently the SR24 has more room than the SR23 because I could not get my fat forearm through enough to do maintenance properly. I have had the phenolic top off and if I had any serious repairs I would certainly do that but I didn't want to do it for maintenance.

When you get your dovetail jig completed can you send some pictures please?

How long did it take you to build that gorgeous looking table?

Jim, nice table and I am sure the future new folks will appreciate all the different ideas in this thread.

Maybe this thread should be moved to the New CNC Setup or leave in both?

Jim, your shop looks like a very clean kitchen and your embarrassing most of the rest of us. I am definitely not showing to my Wife. She is a neat freak and when she cannot stand it any longer will clean up my shop.

Keith, Thanks for noticing my table. I will post it to the New CNC Setup when I have it finished... I posted it now because a new user wanted suggestions. As for the clean shop; I have to be organized or I can't find anything. Since the shop is in the basement I do everything I can to keep the dust down. If I don't clean up after a project my wife will for sure.
