Operating Table

Post by JohnBP » Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:44 am

Recent activity in repairs and set ups got me thinking about "a better way." I also recently acquired a Kreg's Jig which, if you didn't know, is a framing tool that vastly speeds up the process. Pictured is the results. It's a rolling table with locking casters that provides a better access to the instrument and less back strain. It is carpeted and has an adjustable neck support and tool shelf below. I will also add hook eyes so that the instrument can be strapped in place.

Now if I only felt comfortable tearing apart old basses and guitars.

A Kreg 5 Master is in my plan for 2017 for some of my art pieces.
