My dad and I enjoy doing occasional projects together. Over the Christmas break, our project was to make me a stand for my scroll saw. We found a plan online and made it over a few days. It is made of reclaimed jarrah (very heavy and probably well over 50 years old) except for the top which is 1" thick mdf. We re-dressed the jarrah and used long 14g bugle head batten screws to hold it all together. We chose a 3-leg design so it should be extra sturdy on my uneven paving.

Looking forward to giving it a test run.

The height adjustable office chair (minus the back) was free (found on the verge for council pick-up).

Interesting design!  I like the angled table top.  Is it adjustable?

No it's not adjustable, although there is enough length on the risers that they could be moved up or down and re-attached. ~5 degree angle is used throughout. I just moved the risers up along the back leg (which leans out at 5 deg) until it met the angle of the top. Time will tell if this is enough of an angle, but it's certainly better than having it flat - so much less strain on my neck.
