Item details

Made from Birch and/or Maple top plywood, smooth sanded, with three coats of water based polyurethane finish applied. (For an un-finished version, see Item # 211-2) The extra-long bolts also give a total opening height of 3-13/16” (min), so thick or multiple stacks can be pressed flat at the same time. The table is 14-1/2” deep, but longer materials can be used as there is no depth restriction.

The soft feel oversized knobs can be easily spun down holding everything firmly in place with minimal effort. No fighting with wing nuts & hurting fingers trying to get proper clamping pressure. Overall nominal dimensions: 14-1/2” wide x 14-1/2” deep x 6-1/2” high (top of bolt). Four plated 5/16-18 x 6-1/2” carriage bolts are threaded into steel thread inserts in the lower platen. The top platen is pressed down by using four oversized 2-1/2” diameter polypropylene knobs with metal thread inserts for extra ease in clamping down tightly.

Special size beds, bolts, materials, stains, finishes, or knobs will be cheerfully quoted upon request!

Took a month to arrive, went around the US post offices in Indianna and Ohio that have a town with same name as mine in Washington state. Finally arrived same day as seller sent a second one with upgraded shipping to priority mail which arrived in a couple of days. Perhaps cheaper shipping not appropriate to use
