This top is made of solid MDF for stability and flatness, and coated with melamine so it won't mar your parts, and sheds glue easily. It's generously dimensioned at 28" x 40", and works well for a general-purpose work table, a sanding station, or an assembly table. It also works well as a table top for the Shark line of CNC routers. Pair it with your own shop-built base cabinet, or with our 24"W x 36"L Shop Stand (48089, sold separately). Also available from Rockler, the complete Rockler CNC Table w/Stand and Controller Brackets.

Imagine a workshop so clean and organized that you can find your tools with a blindfold on, and tell in an instant if one is missing. With FastCap's Kaizen Foam, it's no longer a figment of your imagination. Just open a drawer to reveal all of your tools exactly the way you organized them, the cutting edges still pristinely sharp. Unlike other versions of tool storage foam, Kaizen foam is layered so you can peel out layers until you reach the desired depth. This means the foam will still have a firm backing once the tools recesses are cut out, and you won't have those annoying floating islands where, say, the middle of a hacksaw was. If you cut the recesses nice and snug, you can even mount the entire panel on the wall. Cut it to size in seconds with a table saw. Sold in two thicknesses: 1-1/8" and 2-1/4", each 2'W x 4'L.Technical Details:FastCap Kaizen Foam is constructed of many layers of 1/8" thick foam. Simply trace around the tool with a marker, cut out the outline, and peel off the layers as you would an orange peel until you reach the desired depth.Easily cut to size with a table saw and/or chop saw to fit your drawers or any other space. Works much like wood.For an easy way to create finger recesses, simply heat a small piece of copper pipe and touch it to the foam-the foam melts away, leaving a perfect semi-circular recess.Perfect for router bit storage-just drill holes into the foam.
