24x48 stainless steel table help.
« on: November 01, 2017, 04:39:01 PM »
I found this table at a thrift store.  Its 24x48,  and has wheels.  My WFO will be outside and I dont have a lot of prep space, so I thought about getting one of these anyway.   They want $45 for it.  Its not as sturdy as others Ive used but a simple fix should take care of that...  and worst case scenario,  I can build a different base for the top.  Again its $45.... any thoughts or things Im not thinking about.

Just one...why haven't you bought it?????
It's a treasure and a steal at that price! Great for opening your dough balls into skins on, or use as a prep table.
I wish I found that at our thrift store!  :)

John;
If you should find that the top is too springy for your liking flip the table over and glue a piece (1/2 sheet) of 3/4 or 1" plywood to the underside of the top.

Great idea!  I now own it.  Any ideas on what/how I could make a border on the back and sides?  I see a lot of excess flour spilling over...

Aluminum or stainless steel flat stock 2.5 to 3-inches wide by 1/8-inch thick bolted to the edge should work well but might be expensive. A lower cost alternative might be a few pieces of Formica covered wood either screwed or glued onto the table would also work well and be a lot cheaper to boot. You could get fancy and make the back high enough to hold some of your tools or make shelves for dusting flour, scrapers, cutters, etc.
