« Part 2: 70 gallons of planer chips and counting..... Part 3 of Miter - RAS - Drum - Wall series Part 4: Miter Saw Dust Collection »

I think I’m done with the major Oak bits finally… least I hope so! This project has really freed up a lot of lumber storage…........

Again – the tables, fences and dust collection are not done and/or fastened…..decided that I need to add the finish to the table tops before fastening, so the dust collection will follow that….I think.

Anyways – it occurred to me that I may be able to incorporate one of the drill presses into the wall – I am all about maximizing the usable space… to the left of the miter saw, I believe the base of the drill press can co-exist below the table to the left of the miter saw…....

The base:

Without the table:

With the table:

On the other end of things – finished up framing in the corner to the right of the drum sander – built an “L” shape corner to pickup the spindle sander at the same time.

A shot with just the framing:

And with the floating shelves:

The shop vac is pretty much dedicated to this tool so it can stay right under the sander:

The floating shelves, which are common throughout this build including the slide-outs are simply 3/4” oak ripped to random widths and sit in rabbets in the frame…....can’t really see why these won’t work. Always left a bit of room for them to grow so should be self sufficient…......

Getting closer….........

Thanks for looking.

I love the floating shelves. If ever you need a new setup it will be no problem.
Jeff it is looking very neat and clean. Keep us posted.
