I know this is another one of those subjective type questions, but I've gotten some really good advice before, so here it goes.
For starters, I cannot see myself really working on heavy projects. But I do want a table top that's not going to flex when I least want it to.
There's two ideas that I want to incorporate into any table that I build. One idea I got from here. And that's was one of the posters mentioned he had drilled holes in a grid like pattern across his table. Using long bolts, nuts and and some various length of metal tubing he could make bending frames for his projects. And I really liked that idea.
The other idea I got from some new products that Sears carries. For someone like me, who doesn't have a whole building or basement for place to mount every type of tool I'd like to own, they have this system where you stow your saws, presses and what all in a one cabinet and then use one stand you mount all your tools too.
As I said, I don't see myself at this time working on anything too heavy. I'm looking mainly at yard art, sculptures, and so on. So I don't think I need anything like 1/2 inch or bigger. Would 1/4 or 3/8th be good?
