An air-equipped table is disclosed which includes a frame mounted table top of sturdy, planar construction. The table top is formed with a laminate of a thin top hardboard layer, a thin bottom hardboard layer and a relatively thick particle board layer sandwiched therebetween. A plurality of air distribution channels are formed in the particle board layer prior to lamination to provide an integral air distribution system beneath the table top surface. A plurality of equally spaced orifices are drilled through the thin top layer to communicate with the air distribution channels in a manner to provide a uniform air cushion over the table surface. An air moving unit is interconnected with the air distribution channels and is designed to provide either air pressure or suction forces at the plurality of orifices.
