I used 2 sawhorses and a piece of plywood reinforced with some 2x4s.

I was wondering why the water balloon was getting bigger... and then it hit me.

I made a 4x8 platform using 2x4s and a sheet of cheap 3/4 plywood on locking caster wheels so I could roll it in and out as I worked on it.

Worked like a champ :thumbsup:

I used saw horses and then the trailer base until the walls went up. Then back to the saw horses.

Don't need no stinkin' table. I used the garage floor (and knee pads).

I use an old ammo can in the back and a tool chest in the front. I keep the trailer on that to keep my saw horses handy.

I use what I call "Bingo Tables". I have about 6 of them, 30X96" and I have 2 sets of "Leg extenders" I made to make the table 30", 36" or 42" high.

Depending on what I'm doing. (And how much leaning over bothers my Back)

I was about to bond the faces to the wall frames with epoxy. The plastic is really slippery when it is doubled up.

Yep, I was gluing my frame together and did not want to get glue on the floor. Once the glue dried, any that squeezed out peeled away easily from the plastic. ;)
