Table Build continues

I had planned on using sawhorses for the base.  I tried it and didn't like it.  Even though I bought nice metal sawhorses, they didn't seem stable enough for me.  Then there is the garage floor slope.  It work out to be just under 1inch slope over 8 feet.  That would have meant rigging something with the sawhorses.

So I decided to build my own base.  4x4 post at the 4 corners.  On the uphill end the post are 3 feet, and a bit longer on the down hill side. 1x4s for a frame for the top and shelf area, and middle support

The bottom of the top is 1/2 inch MDF.  I am using unistrut glued to that.  Then I will put a 3/4 inch top on that and bolt it all together using carriage bolts.
