I use a hollow core door with a ceiling tile turned upside down and mounted at four corners can easily pin work to it and you can stand it up in a corner when not in use.I have even left parts pinned to it when stored.

use a glass table if you spill glue on it you can just run your knife across the table and it will peel right up

Glass will also ruin your knives, so be careful.

I used a glass 1/8" sheet(~12x24") for a while.(did a lot of knife sharpening) It worked well.(as long as you don't push with your thumb really hard in the center while it's on you lap)

building surface Tip SPRAY PAINT

Been building for over 25 years. Balsa, foam, Coroplast and composites too.
A truly straight table is a must and is the base for whatever surface is actually built on. I use a recycled drafting table top and pin to ceiling tiles. But I never liked how these can fuzz up. So I use an entire $1.00 can of cheap spray paint on the reverse side AND edges. Use lots of light coats and don't wet it out anywhere.

I used to use a metal desk but after storing it for a few years when I was out of RC it got bent. I confess to having built a half of a wing with potato chip like quality.

you can get many sizes of Masonite laminate shelves at Menards, etc. Because of the way they are made , most are very straight and level. I then hot glue an appropriate piece of ceiling tile to that. You can make about any size you want, and very portabe.

Possibly the flattest, truest surface you will find is 3/4 inch float glass. It's poured on a pool of liquid mercury to keep it perfect during manufacture. Ask your local glass shop - they may have scrap pieces from a commercial window. Use weights or tape to hold components in place.
