State of the shop and yay to new toys

07-04-2014 05:45 AM by Sanding2day | 3 comments »

My mother is set to semi retire at the end of this month and requested assistance removing some items from her home in order to increase her ability to change locations more effectively. Happy to assist and believed most of the items could be sold for an amount greater than the UHaul expense but was unfortunately incorrect on this. Have began pulling them apart for their pieces and generally been fairly pleased… Working on a commissioned toy box and have found adequate Red Oak mat...

Work Station #2: Sled and Router Table Insert

01-02-2014 08:04 PM by christenite | 1 comment »

I’ve continued tinkering with my table saw stand/workstation. Since I moved the fence system all the way to the right, the ruler was no longer accurate. I purchased a new one and got that zeroed in without a too much effort. I also started an apothecary style entertainment center for our house. I knew pretty quickly that I was going to need a sled for cutting my panels to length. So I made the one in the second picture first with some scrap oak I had laying around and a 1/2” piece...

The Plan Table use: I plan to use the table for things like: a sanding area surface for mounting the PC dovetail jig mount for the pocket hole jig area for clamping glue ups. other uses where work piece needs to be held in position via clamps.

Table Saw Workstation, Craftsman 113.xx #2: Not finished, but enough progress for an update

12-16-2012 07:38 PM by DSnyder | 5 comments »

So, here is the current status. Doesn’t look like much progress from 2 months ago, but several things have actually taken place: 1. Built homemade belt guard (yes I could have bought one off ebay or from Sears but this was more fun)2. Installed safety switch and wiring.3. Added dust bin under the saw using scrap formica material. The design might be original? I was planning on building a “ramp” down to a hose connector, but saw this scrap and thought I would try it. Seale...

Table Saw Workstation, Craftsman 113.xx #1: Step 1 Complete

10-05-2012 06:11 AM by DSnyder | 7 comments »

1. Start2. Finish! So…I got the fence installed on my new table saw workstation today, and realized that I am way behind on sharing this. The problem is, any time I get on LJ I end up looking at other people’s cool stuff! This is not an exhaustive list of the resources and references I utilized, but these are the ones that I bookmarked and came back to several times. Some of the other ‘table saw workstations’ on this site are RIDICULOUSLY drool-worthy. My goal wa...

mini roubo #5: lots of yak shaving this past week.

03-26-2012 06:26 PM by kaaahl | 1 comment »

I’m sure this has happened to other people—you start out trying to do one thing and end up doing all sorts of others. That’s the definition of yak shaving—one thing leads to another and before you know it you end up needing to shave a yak when all you wanted to do was (insert activity). I have the bench top to the basic shape I want, including dado-ing out some chisel and saw holders. I started to visualize the base of the bench—I like to get exact meas...

Table Saw/Router Work Station #1: Creating the Carcass

02-19-2010 07:35 PM by Josh | 2 comments »

The reason I originally found this site was because I wanted to make my tablesaw more ‘usable’. I have a small craftsman beginner type table saw and I wanted to add a wing or something to give me more support for cutting so I looked around for plans and found a ton of awesome work stations on this site. I guess the design comes from Norm Abram (sp?). Anyway, I decided to finally get going on this so I took the things I liked from all of your projects and tried to use them in my...
