    We're getting ready to expand our office from around 1,200 sq ft to just a bit under 3,000 sq ft and one of the things I want to do with the space is add a 2nd production table.

    The one we currently have came with the company when I purchased it so I'm not sure where it originally came from.


    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...thanks!

    Build one in house. We made a couple 5x12 tables and put formica on for the top. Made them the same height as our laminator.
    Other option is a local metal fab shop for aluminum or steel. We use a local welder to build stands and hes building us another large a-frame panel rack now.

    We made all own, but there are many kits available that all you need to get is the material for the top/shelves. Get one with heavy duty casters

    www.yellotools.us/cutting/cutting-mats/

    Build one with a plywood top, and add a cutting Mat, the yellow tool ones come.in many different sizes and you can order them in whatever length you want. They're a bit.kore pricey than normal ones... But they're thick and last a long time. We like them much better than the rhinos and will eventually replace all our rhinos with them.

    +1 on building your own. I made several, tailored to my short stature.

    If I were to do it again, I would make sure the table top would extended beyond the base...I usually snag things with my shorts.

    We use the clear one. Back when we bought it they didn't have frosted... Not sure what the difference is besides the look. I guess frosted will hide all the cuts better once it's more used.

    The main reason we like it is how thick it is... If you have a rolls roller it's about as thick as that. It's a more soft plastic too... It's like double the price of a normal cutting Mat, but when you use the all day everyday it's worth the expense. Plus you can build a 20ft table and get a 20ft mat in one piece. So it does have upsides besides being good quality!

    I find everything from yellowtools, while expensive is one of the best products you can buy. They usually outlast the competitors products also.
