I have pretty much gotten this thing to where it will be when its 100% complete (basically drawer pulls and finishing touches). I always feel like I am never done with a project cause Im always trying to improve something. My wife jokes with me and says that its the neverending project cause I keep adding to it; but I digress.
I incorporated electrical specifically for the router and compressor underneath the router station as well as a dedicated outlet underneath the table saw and also added a quad on each end of the cabinet for miscellaneous power tools. I found more drawer storage for glue and other cylindrical item storage in the vertical drawer. I also had enough height underneath the saw to add a drawer to store saw blades and other miscellaneous saw stuff. The drawer that has always been in the designed had some modifications done to it to incorporate removable boxes to use for general storage when building a project but can be quickly stored away when the table surface needs to be cleared to make the infamous “forgotten cut”. I added an extension cord that gives me the umbilical connection to power the station and can be fed back into the cabinet when not in use while it may not be pretty when shoved all in it is behind doors and is easily retractable. I used the leg that came with the Biesemeyer fence to support the outfeed table and it hooks onto a cleat at the saw side. The leg itself is attached to the outfeed table with a standard door hinge so that it can collapse when stowed away. Im not completely happy with the outfeed design but it works for now. Everything else I am content with, now I just have to start on my next project… Thanks for looking! I hope that I have given others ideas if you are thinking of building one for yourself.
