This was an old folding work bench that was being given away at a yard sale. The original particle board top had been severely damaged. Looked like it had been stored outdoors for years. There is some surface rust on the frame, too... but nothing too bad.
I made the new top completely out of stuff I had left over from other projects. It is 2 layers of 3/4" particle board with a 3/4"x1.5" pine edge band. The edge banding is held in place by pocket screws from the underside of the top piece of particle board. Now that it is in place, the pocket holes are completely hidden. The top is approx. 25.5" x 37.5" x 1.5".
I'll be adding a bench Klamp or two soon... already got a couple of them sitting around. The table still folds up to a nice compact size for traveling or storing out of the way. It is quite a bit heavier than before... but it is also larger and sturdier!
