Here is a pic of my new RAS Bench. I am pleased how it turned out. The drawers are all full extension. The vacant spot under the workbench will be a bay for the jointer. I am going to have a system to roll the jointer unfer the bench when not in use.
Dust collection will be installed next summer.

Nice job – well thought out.
It’s an odd thing to see a rifle hanging from the rafters – we have to have them locked up here in Australia.

Your shop is really coming together nicely. I am sure it will be as nice as the shop itself. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Man, I can only wish for that much space. Great job on the setup though, looks functional as well as nice to look at, the sign of a good design

Very nicely done. But I’d be concerned about having a rifle and scope hanging in a shop without a dust collection system.

Looking good!

I saw an article on some woodworking magazine a while ago, can’t remember offhand which one, where he took his jointer and had mounted it on some retractable guide rails and casters (think drawer slides on steroids basically) and it slid into the cubby under his bench, and easily pulled forward to work with.

Nice work, if I had a RAS… and more space in my shop I could see myself making a bench much like this one.

Nice space for the RAS – jealous – Workshop coming along really nicely.
Good to have protection nearby too, in case moose try to get in to do some woodworking…

Summer coming soon – only 6 months away now, eh? :)

Quebecnewf, I thought I recognized the name. It’s been a long time since I caught one of your posts. I remember being awed by the gumption required to build your shop on those piers in the middle of nowhere. I had to go back through your blog and other posts to get caught up. So far I reckon you owe me a few pictures of the firring strips you produce from the three sided planer, an explanation of why your shop wasn’t blown away in the 100KM (62MPH) winds and huge waves you posted, some pictures of the downdraft table build, an explanation of why you took so long to post more stuff, a description of more precisely where you live, and … oh … uh ummm… sorry, got carried away again. Anyway, I’m glad you posted something and hope to see more from you. We missed you.
