Featured in the PR book!
I'm very happy with the cutting table I made two years ago. I needed the table to fit over a twin sized bed. I used a hollow core door, two sawhorse kits using 1x6's (to attach to the door) and 2x4's as the legs. My personal twist on the design involved the length and placement of the 1x6's. The long 1x6's allowed me to place the legs far enough apart to straddle the bed. When I need the bed for a guest, I can remove the sawhorse legs and lean the tabletop between the bed and the wall and it looks like a daybed. One drawback: due to the size it takes two people to dismantle the table.

You know what they say about "necessity being the mother of invention"! You've proved that one right! Love your table! Very ingenious!!

If I didn't already have an excellant cutting table (made for me by my husband), I'd use this idea. It's very clever.
