Wow, it is amazing how many interruptions you can run into with projects that require other projects to be completed first. It’s been over 3 months since I got my OX and it is still only 90% complete. Fortunately I have completed the other more important projects and can now focus on my OX. The table might look familiar. Thanks @donkjr

Wow that is nicely done. I’m guessing the plans worked ok for you?

@donkjr Yes, I was surprised just how solid it feels. I used smaller lag bolts (1/4) and only pre-drilled 40% the length of the bolts. Overall it was easy to follow what you had done. Thanks for a good design.

I built a torsion box table for mine, then bolted the Y axis rails right to the outside of the torsion box. Added an incredible amount of strength to the build, and reduced the amount of V slot required as there was no need for cross braces at the ends.

@funinthefalls I forgot to ask this before: can you provide details on your torsion box?

I will draw up a quick sketch and post it. But it is basically a rectabgular box the size of the bed by 4" thick with internal stiffener ribs made of 3/4" plywood running front to back and lengthwise in a grid pattern, skinned top and bottom by 3/4" plywood. I used cabinet grade maple plywood for strength and flatness.
