Workbench Build #22: Rough Plan For The Base.. Opinions Needed..

03-12-2013 07:00 AM by Airframer | 17 comments »

Well, I bit the bullet and finally installed Sketchup. I am very far from proficient at it but I was able to mock together a rough draft of what I have planned for the base of this bench. Here is the deal. I am active duty military so I know I WILL be moving at some point. With that in mind I have to be mindful of what I build and the fact that I will need to load it into a truck at some point.

Work Bench Build #1: The Beginnings, where I come from, and where I'm going.

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

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 ...
