This work table is a perfect place to sketch out a drawing, spread out a plan, or tackle a small project. And when you're ready to close up shop for the day, there's a drawer underneath that provides a convenient place to hold tools and supplies, see photo.
SUPPORTS. To provide a sturdy work surface, the table is held up by two matching supports (Q). These are just pieces of plywood that are cut and sanded to a gentle curve, see Fig. 7 and the pattern below.
HANGING BRACKETS. The supports are attached to a pair of hanging brackets. But this time, I used the long (I6V2") brackets to provide extra strength.
In addition to the length of these brackets, there's one other difference. To accept the supports, a Va'-deep groove is cut in each hanger block. After fitting the supports into these grooves, they're simply glued and screwed in place, see Fig. 7a.
STRETCHERS. To add rigidity to the table, I added three stretchers (R) that bridge the supports. One of them is screwed to the bottom of the supports. The other two are screwed flush with the top edge of the supports.

TOP At this point, work can begin on the table top. It's made up of two separate layers. A plywood core creates a flat, stable base, see Fig. 8. And a hard-board cover provides a smooth, durable work surface.
An easy way to get the edges of these pieces perfectly aligned is to cut the plywood core (S) to
final size first. Then, after gluing on a slightly oversize cover (T), trim the overhanging edges with a flush trim bit and handheld router.
EDGING. The edges of the table top are bound to get nicked up
