At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...
Time to modify the workbench. I built the bench a year ago. Currently it has a simple shelf for storage. The plan is to build a simple cabinet with drawers to store hand tools, possibly my routers, and other “stuff” Here is a pic of the plan from Matthew Teague’s Setting up Shop (same place I got the bench plan). The drawers are weird. The bottoms are glued and stapled up onto the box. The bottom then becomes the runners. —————&...
Spent a few hours today cutting, grinding and welding. The main base assembly is all welded up. I am going to finish (grind) some of the welds, clean the rust off of the steel and get ready for the feet and casters. Overall pretty productive day so far… I am just going to post a bunch of pictures, if anyone has any questions, just let me know! Cut tubing Fitting the miters Tacked up one side Tight fit Layout for end caps End caps rough cut Caps welded Some wel...
I’m a member of the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association. We have classes on a variety of woodworking topics virtually ever Saturday. Most of the presentations are now recorded and uploaded to YouTube.

Here is the link All of our classes are recorded live and unscripted. Should you be in the Atlanta area on a Saturday ...

Taking inspiration from zzzzdoc, tedth66, Jeremy Greiner, and others (here, here, and here), I am setting out on a mission to create a Table Saw Station for my SawStop Contractor saw. The reasons for the project are similar to theirs: I need more storage space in my small shop, I’d like a robust stand for the saw that’s easy to move around, and their’s look really cool! I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and many hours mocking up ideas and dimensions i...
I am the proud owner of a new Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw (PCS). I picked it up just a couple of days ago from Brentwood Machinery in NH and brought it into the shop. It comes with the rails, T-glide fence and extension table. I went with the 36” rails as I have a smaller shop and I use a festool TS55 to break down larger sheet goods. I also opted for the mobile base to move it around when/if I need to. I just started opening the packaging today and was not disappointed ...
The new Sawstop PCS is fully assembled! Everything I read on the internet about Sawstop’s great packaging was right-on; I was not disappointed! I unpacked the saw box and started reading the assembly instructions. On went the crank wheels, motor cover, extension wings, switch and tool holder. I of course cleaned the cast iron and then applied some T-9 Boeshield and wax. Next came the rails and fence. After the rails were on (which was very easy), the instructions said to put...

We moved to our new home in northern Illinois more than a year ago and I spent a lot of time planning the shop, drawing plan after plan, searching the net for ideas and so on.To give her credit, my wife tired of the plans (even though I told her it was half the fun) and gave me a SawStop Professional Cabinet Saw for Christmas! If you wonder why I went hog-wild with a SawStop, I’ll tell you that one of my long-standing rules, even back in my days up north was “nobody gets injured, ...
