While doors and such make great worktops, I checked in with my local kitchen/bath remodeling shop. I picked up a nice piece of countertop that was a sales sample. The few dollars I paid were better for them than throwing it out. The downside is you have to like purple. (kidding)

Created one like it a few years back. The boxes work great being different demensions on three sides, very stable, easy to store and I have used boxes for addional storage on jobs when needed. Using a door has been ideal, light weight, strong enough for most painting, finishing, cutting material and sanding large pieces. If you can't find a used door panel buy one, Hollow core doors are stable, light and inexpensive to purchase.

Would have been nice to include a cut out sheet for the plywood instead of just dimensions. Is it just me that has problems like this? I'm less of a draftsman than a carpenter!! Give us amateurs a break!

I had an old solid core door and the neighbor threw out an old folding table which had working legs. I took them off the damaged particle board table and screwed them to the door. Folds up quickly and easier and more stable than just sitting on boxes.
