Okay, it is finnally finished, I have mentioned it numerous times, Here it is. Finnally my Router table, and Mitersaw have a home along with my compressor. The whole is made from 2X4s and scrap. I spent a total of $75 on the whole thing.
$12 hold fast
and $20 on 2X4s. I used a lot of HDs finest cull at $.51 each.
The whole deal is 1/4” lower than my Table saw. The fence for the router table can be used to extend the fence for the Mitersaw, I still need to make the fence extension on the other side that fits into dog holes. Then I will bolt the MS in place. The butcher block contains ash, hickory, cherry, oak, maple and poplar. There is a down draft table, and sander storage behind and under, and none of my sanders are tall enough to get in the way when the DD is in use. I built a chisel rack behind that. There is also a good deal of pegboard. There is a dust port that exits behind the router table and through the pegboard. I think I built in as much function as I could into a 9 foot table. Incedentally the green drawer under the router table is from my old dresser. I know it is not pretty, but it is solid and utillitarean.
I now have a good place to dut dovetails.
