I pretty well finished with phase 1 of my workshop renovation. I’ve added a bench for the miter saw and drill press and it also doubles the storage I had. The cabinet on top of the bench is a project for my grandparents that will go out as soon as I can find the time to put on a finish:
Here you can see the storage area and the home for the planer, air compressor, and dust collector. The planer cart used to house my CMS.
I rearranged my main bench area, too. This area is going to be phase 2 of the project where I’ll build a better bench and create a better tool wall, probably without pegboard. I’m trying to take Rick’s advice, though, and take it slowly so I don’t get burned out.
Here’s a shot of my Frankenstein router table. I bought the top and fence for $20. It came with 2 aluminum plates, too (stealth gloat). I built the base out of stuff laying around the shop and put on some locking casters. I’m going to add a couple more drawers soon.
I’m off to watch my Colts. Thanks for looking!
