Two sawhorses and a sheet of plywood make for a very basic worktable. The new Benchmark Table offers a little more versatility. It has a grooved top so sheet goods can be crosscut and ripped with no damage done to its surface. Folded up, it's 6-1/2 inches thick and weighs just over 50 pounds, making it easy to transport and store. The aluminum frame holds up to 250 pounds of material. Accessories like tool trays, cord holders, and casters are also available.
