My shop is an ever growing process. I am always looking for improvement and learning better and better process’s. Efficiency and work flow are both huge for me and my business. I built an outfeed table when i moved in, but never addressed the storage problems with the underneath. Well now that is taken care of with my new outfeed table storage cabinet. Check out the full build video and plan!

Nice – my shop doesn’t even look that clean right after I’ve cleaned it!

BTW – just started listening to your Made for Profit podcast. You guys are killing it! At some point when I’m not on the road working way too many hours in a week, I plan to actually follow some of your advice…

This is a wonderful out feed table and so nicely done. It has a lot of great storage in it.

Great looking workbench with lots of storage. You should get many years of service out of that. Nice job. Congrats on the Top Three!!
