Stowaway Assembly Table
Simplify project assemblies with this Stowaway Assembly Table. A large, flat surface at just the right height.
For most of us, shop space is at a premium. But that doesn’t mean that some luxury fixtures in the shop are out of reach. Take an assembly table for example. Having a large, flat surface where you have the room to lay out clamps, apply glue, and assemble parts is a great way to ensure a glueup goes smoothly. With this stowable assembly table, you’ll finally be done with the challenge of a glueup on your workbench.
The features on this assembly table are many. First, the top is large — a full-sized sheet of Baltic birch plywood makes up the worksurface. That means no more juggling a project where the legs just barely fit on your workbench as you’re putting it together. Speaking of the top, the torsion-style construction keeps the top flat during storage and use, and gives you options for clamping around the perimeter.
The four base assemblies create a rock-solid foundation for even the heaviest projects. The base assemblies are fastened with binding screws, allowing them to be taken apart, folded up, and stashed out of the way. However, after using this assembly table and having a new, flat surface to work on, I’m not so sure that you won’t leave it set up as a permanent fixture in your shop.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
