I just was thinking it would be awesome to see a table were I could create electronics with organization and everything at my finger tips and I'm on vacation so I was wondering if any one could build it and send pictures in comments that would be so great. I will ask my dad but i might make it when i gett home and i will post it.

Step 1: Diogram of Top

Here is a diagram of how it would look in draft look
red: is bread boards
blue: is a movable desk on rails to put laptops on etc
Orange: is the in table soldering iron
Green: is removable trays
Yellow: is a volt meter with probes but I forgot to draw them
Purple: is extra plugs to plug in lapttops etc
1: is to Key switch power on bread board from ac/dc or reverse
2: is to select the volts on bread board
3: is to Key shut down power to soldering iron, bread board and volt meter so kids can not burn it out
4: switch to turn off soldering iron
5: switch to turn off volt meter

Step 2: Ciurcuits Draft

circuits sorry it is so bad this was jut kind of a simple layout not anything you should rely on when building the fine components I was in a hurry kind of!
Blue: is the surge protector
Purple: is the volt meter electronics
Yellow: is the relay to shut down every thing but I forgot to put the relay on the volt meter
Green: is the power step down for the switch
Orange: is the AC/DC selector components
Pink: is the volt selecting components
Looks like you are off to a good start. I have been thinking for sometime of a similar project, because I do all my electronic work on the dining room table and stuff gets moved and lost every time it gets cleaned off because company is coming. Another thought is to have the desk in a roll-top design so you can roll it down and lock everything easily. I look forward to see further progression or other people's suggestions.
if you want to make circuit diagrams on the computer, i know of a great program you can download for free. it's called expresspcb, comes with a program for designing the circuit and the circuit board.
cool, doesn't need much thinking to build only the know how, the hardest thing would be the woodwork and just building the table so it wouldn't be that hard. NEAT...(pun)
for john it was a quick thing not to much thought just to post it to see what people would make and so I would remember it so if you want to change it copy my photo and edit it or build shoot all the ideas at me
Well you've got the right idea for a work area but one thing I notice is you only have 14 parts trays. My work are has 96 separate drawers for electronics components. you need 24 just for resistors. I have all the 1ohm, 10ohm, 100ohm, 1K, 10K, 100K, 1M and so on in 1 drawer. this way you only have to look at the 3rd stripe to identify resistors. The first 2 stripes are only available in 24 different combinations. another 24 drawers for caps and more for everything else. It also looks like you have the breadboards fixed to the table and right near the soldering iron. take it from you don't want to solder over your breadboards. I like the ones that snap together to form bigger boards then I take them apart and they have there own space. also I can't understand the diagram in step 2 at all.
probably should have done this as a forum post until you actually build the thing
good idea, but instructable is lacking somewhat :)
