Default portable carving table with chip catcher

Hi, I finally got my table top made for the table I bought at Staples so I'm posting some pictures of it. I wanted to add it to the earlier thread I started about the chip catcher but couldn't figure out how to get the pictures into it, I know not a thing about url's. I used 1/2 inch plywood on the bottom and the rest is 1X3's.I don't know if it shows in the pix but it has two hand holes on the sides so it is easy to pick up and move. I put a drop down piece on the front to keep it from sliding back on the table and still have to put some non-slip material on the bottom so it doesn't slide sideways.I didn't want to have the drop downs on the sides or back because I may want to carve at the kitchen table sometimes.I have added a strip of velcro to the back on the knife shelf and a strip to the bottom of the apron.The first pix shows it "parked" and the second one is set up to carve. I have it beside my other work table so I can use that space also.I thought I had lots of tools till I put them in the tool rack and even my husband says I don't have very many so guess what I will be spending my spare cash on for the next while? I have to fill all those holes you know.

I have a potting tray that I can rest on my lap or put on a table. I like yours better as it has soul. I might make one now I am inspired.

Thanks for all your comments. Dave, I am going to do the reverse and make something similar for a potting table, really like that idea.
