So, I’ve been a long-time lurker, but this is my first post. A couple years ago I tried my hand at an MPCNC and while I had some success, the lure of the larger work surface kept me dreaming of building a low rider. Last fall, I completed all of the printing and used my MPCNC to cut out the wood parts. I’ve been thinking about options for a work surface and finally settled on building a wooden frame around an old outdoor aluminum table top I had been holding on to. The attached pic is the start of the table. My goal is to be able to build some detachable side panels to increase length and width when a project warrants. I like that the aluminum frame keeps the table light and it should also be very stiff. I don’t recall seeing anybody else take this approach, so if people think this is a bad idea, please let me know.
TIA for any feedback.
