I’m finished (for now) with my workstation and fence. I plan to add drawers to the front and rear wide cubicles later. All recycled materials except for 2 sheets of 3/4” ply for the top and the locking casters (that work very well).
The saw is a Delta Contractors saw model 34-444. Decent motor. Cleaned and lubed it after purchasing on Craig’s list for $160. The fence system was actually not bad, but not a good match for the size of this table and the solid top. It required a rear bar that I didn’t want to cut out for and the travel would have been short of the width of the bench.
I’d not made a lot of box type projects. I could have used a dado stack. I mostly used butt joints. It’s strong and very stable due to the layout; more sure joints would have been even better. Everything is glued and screwed except for the top which can be replaced easily.
The fence is loosely patterned off of Wooden Tool Man’s youtube video. Works well. I’m excited to have the power and table surface after using a Shopsmith for years. It cuts smoothly and now I have so much storage that can be moved around very easily, that I just go out to the shop to gaze. ;)
Hope you like it and that it gives you ideas for your project. Let me know if you have questions.
