i bought a “registration counter” from a local blockbuster that was closing down for $30.

incra track and the back lip of the counter to make up the fence.

the insert i bought installed really nicely, made by someone with a j i can’t remember.

jessem thats the one…

anyways…lemme know what you think

oh also took the power supply off the crappy craftsman table i had before so now i can turn on the router and shopvac at the same time, joy!

Thats one way of being green. Reusing a good product instead of trashing it.

Very nice re-use of a throwaway item!

I don’t suppose they threw in a free movie…...?

Love the recycling aspect of your build.
Love the phrase “closed blockbuster” even more.
The amount of money I paid those pirates for alleged late
fees could have paid for a tool or two!
