Nice! Great use of space. Do the tops rotate or do you have to lift them?

Interesting use of space… How do they flip? Are they on pivots or do you lift and place them?

The position of the bag on the miter saw while upside down would be an indicator that the tops rotate. I like the way you have the miter level in both positions.Nice job.

I really like this and had been thinking about doing just what you have accomplished. I may have to go back and revisit this project. Well done.

Thanks for the comments. The top panels are made of 2 pieces of 3/4 Plywood. before I glued them together I routed a 1/4” groove down the center of both. when I assembled the tops I sandwiched a 1/2” metal rod that protrudes 1/2” from each side. the sides of the “cube stations” have a routed groove that the rods fit into. allowing me to pull the tool mounts forward enough to flip them over. someday I will get around to putting drawers below the 2 shelves.

A flip stand has been on my to-do list for some time. Your excellent implementation may have just pushed me over the edge – towards doing something about it that is.

Took me a minute to realize it flips over. Very Cool. Looks like something that I need. Nice space saver.

It looks good. It’s a nice way to organize your shop.
