I found an old rectangle shaped dining table at a yard sale for ten bucks! when Im constructing parts of a plane that I need to pin, I put a piece of blue insulation down on it.. works great for me

If you want to go the insanity route:

and a little more insanity:

i've used many different things , but a piece of butcher block or a grizzley industrial work table top would
be the utimate , doors are not flat , ceiling tiles dont hold pins . I use weight now on the structure, no pins, if i have to
i'll use small nails or screws in places i need them . ive been using heavy shelving on a 60 inch long table and i use alot of shims
underneath to level it. grizzly.com

guys its gotta be flat!

here is a pic of my table .. the pic was taken before it was finished.. however it is a standard truss-box design that is made out of a 3/4 partical board box. (the truss-box is 8" tall)with 2 sheets of 3/4 mdf board on top.. legs are 4x4 Douglas Fir(8) all with adjustable feet

this table is level and very flat!!! top size is 40x97(mdf is sold 49"x97")
