Hey all,
I just wanted to pass along a video about some creative space saving ideas for home furniture. Things like Murphy beds and folding tables. Quite a few clever designs that were new to me. Give it a look see.

Take care,
Steve

Interesting link, thanks for the post. Now, if they could only incorporate a lathe and a table saw into one of those wall units!

I agree with brianp….make it into a woodworking tool…but wait, didn’t shopsmith already do that?

What a timely video for me… Our former landlord told us that I couldn’t do woodworking in my basment anymore. So we moved from an 1100 sq ft (1600 with shop)apartment to a 700 sq ft house (1400 with shop). We are buried in boxes and have run out of space. Watching your video link has inspired me to think
out of the box for some solutions. We have chosen a smaller place because of the location, a very desireable
place to live in my town, quite, and the lot you could fit ten of my houses on!!!! Thanks Steve!!!
