    Here're the two tables joined and upside down as I work on the fascia panels. Fortunately I won't have a whole lot of tracks to deal with where the tables connect. I'm hoping that the legs are stiff enough. There will be bookshelves under the layout and cross bracing would block access to the shelves. I think things will work out okay.

    How about putting panels on the end legs. Then a panel through the middle attached to both end panels. I did similar on a fold up table and then attached the book shelves and file cabinets to the middle panel. Maybe you could also attach a shelf near the floor to add even more stability and it keeps things up off the floor, incase there's dampness like in my warehouse shed. Pegboard panels works well for this because it has a lot of holes already. Tywraps come in handy that way.

    Wow! That came out real nice. Particularly like the casters on legs. Are the legs wood too? The modular approach that you mentioned yesterday intrigued me. Guess the key is to have the track segment end plastic edge of Kato track exactly at table edges?

    Thank you. I need the casters so that I can pull the table away from the wall to access the rear for maintenance. I'm tying to keep all of the building materials as light as I can to make it easy to roll and to carry when it's moved. Yes, the legs are also wood. I tapered them from 4" at the top to 3" at the bottom just to add a bit of detail. I've really enjoyed the woodworking segment of the build.
