Portable Jobsite Work Table

This is actually the brainchild of Dana Wilkerson, our resident remodeling contractor. Turns out he’s not just another ugly face with a set of tools…he’s actually pretty smart, but don’t tell him or he’ll get a big head.

It’s a simple idea, and relatively inexpensive. Plus, it stores in a much smaller space than horses and plywood.

It Folds; Plywood Doesn’t

Dana carries a plastic folding table like this to every job. It’s the perfect height, so there’s no bending over to pick stuff up off the ground, plus there’s┬ácovered storage below. It’s perfect for keeping tool bags and boxes arranged and handy. It can also be used as a miter saw stand in some cases, depending on the quality of the table and the weight of the saw, of course.

I know what you’re thinking – buying a work table is a Contractor Quick Tip? Next, I’ll be recommending that you make sure to wear shoes on the job, right? Not at all. This is just a great option to free up sawhorses and it’s a whole lot easier to carry around than a full or even half sheet of plywood.

They’re available at stores like Costco and Home Depot for anywhere from $40 to over $100, you may even find one at a yard sale. The key feature is folding in half, so that it takes up minimal room.
