So I've had this idea in my head for months......I finally spent $8 on 2X4's to make a mock-up....there are lots of little puzzle-like inter dependencies in this design...was a great brain exercise....
The table is built from western red cedar for light weight (smells awesome too!)
the outer two slats are clear fir....western red cedar was not the material of choice to hold the top surface.
Top surface is LDPE (low density polyethylene)....cutting board material....it slides out of either end for easy cleaning
The knobs are all from Mcmaster Carr (of course they are!)
The fasteners and spacers are also from Mcmaster
The links were fabricated from scrap 6061 aluminum that I had laying around
For the keen observers, there are a couple of black delrin blocks..delrin rems picked up when I bought the top sheet at the local plastic supply house.
Yes, I know it looks like something from IKEA...... ;-)
