About a month ago I began evaluating my shop on what I could improve. I thought the biggest difference was to change my cross cutting station, to something that was longer and narrower. After thinking, I’ve been noticing that most of my finished parts are no more that 5 or 6” wide, which is plenty capable for my 10” miter saw. My old table(8’ long) had the radial arm in the middle and the miter saw to the right, and only gave me about 4’ of support on either side, this got difficut when cutting boards more than 10’ long. I also thought that the old table had a to large of a foot print. The new table is 10’ long and 1’ wide, half as wide as the old one. It has considerably made my shop feel less cramped and easier to move around in. Made from 2×6’s and 2×4’s, it was a cheap solution. The spacers inbetween to 2 sheets of plywood were each sized to the right thickness to make the sure the table would be flat, which was a big problem with the old one. The radial arm is currently on a mobile cart.
