The Multi Purpose Table (MPT) is a portable work table that I have designed and built to fill the need for a shop-built, easily portable work table that allows for the integration of various accessories. The MPT allows for an ultra-efficient, portable workflow in both the shop and on the job site. All of the components of the MPT completely pack up within the top section of the table for easy transportation or storage of the MPT.
The key to the MPT's design is it's ability to be quickly and easily disassembled, packed up and moved to another location. This feature is also useful for storing the MPT, taking up a minimal amount of space. The legs and stretchers quickly disassemble and store on the underside of the shelf. The shelf then nests and locks inside the aprons of the top making an easily transported or stored package. Watch the demonstration video to see how the MPT assembles. The MPT weighs in at approximately 52 lbs making it very manageable to transport easily.
There are various accessories that work with the MPT both shop made and commercially available that further expand its use and efficiency. The MPT can be used for just about any woodworking task such as sanding, sawing, routing or assembly. Some key features are: the easy use of clamps anywhere on the table or sides via the 20mm holes, track saw integration with Parf Dogs, easy portability, and easy integration of custom shop made accessories. Plunge-cut track saw integration of virtually any brand with the use of Parf Dogs is one of the key features and uses of the MPT.
