FAQ – 3′ x 6′ Hinged Tabletop for Centipede Sawhorse

Making a portable worktop that overhangs the 2′ x 4′ Centipede™ Sawhorse by a foot on three sides is very stable when both Quick Clamps are used on the side that does not have the overhang. This allows for a 3′ x 6′ bench or table top that travels at 3′ x 3′.
