Now I needed some where to work.I know most on here want a heavy duty work bench but again I work sitting down and have no need these days for planing tables and the like.I don’t know if I will be building a work desk but really don’t have the room at this time, we’ll see.

I all ways need a place to belt sand parts at different heights so.Bought a toilet bolt kit and it has all the pa...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #9: The Assembly/Outfeed Table

04-23-2014 01:53 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...

First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw #1: The Ultimate Work Table

01-27-2012 06:04 PM by psient | 3 comments »

I have decided for my first project, I’ll do Allan Little’s work table. I will make some changes and some additions but basically it’ll be the same thing. Better start a photo log too. I’ll go into my little shop and take some pix of what it looks like now.

Workshop Progress #2: Workshop Progress #2

12-02-2011 12:23 AM by WRAAdesign | 1 comment »

As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted abov...

Work Table Tip

08-22-2011 10:25 PM by woodworkerscott | 3 comments »

The advantages of using kitchen counter tops for work tables. They’re flat, non-porous, and easy to care for. Great for doing life size layout and glue-ups.Been using them for years, really enjoy them and I find them for free. Check with counter top companies; when they do an install and take out the old counter tops they throw them away. Snatch ‘em up. You can also buy them new, fairly inexpensive from home improvement centers. Don’t forget to ask them for the ones damaged ...

A strong, stable and collasible worktable

07-22-2011 10:32 PM by Don Butler | 15 comments »

Having a good workbench is a luxury beyond hope for my shop. It’s a 20×28 floorplan, but its full of machines and I have to garage our car every night. What to do? I needed something strong and stable, good and flat, but something I could get out of the way after a day’s work. It also needed to be light enough for me to handle. 50 years ago I wouldn’t have much trouble with heavy parts, but now, its definitely an issue. After quite a lot of modeling in SketchUp...

Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #4: Attaching the Shelves, Sub top and Wheels

12-06-2009 07:48 PM by Brad_Nailor | 2 comments »

Now it was time to attach the shelves and sub top. I set up another hillbilly out feed table similar to the other one so I didn’t bother photographing the sheet ripping and cross cutting process. I had to cross cut the sheet with a circular saw and a straightedge but it came out perfect…well actually I was 1/16” too long so I hit it with my router and a flush cut bit and a starightedege..and then it was perfect!.. And the shelves were perfect right off the saw..I ...
