Great job I have been really kicking it around about buying the Incra LS system for both my tabel saw and router table. Which one do you have? What do you like and dislike about it? Some great looking projects you have made congrats to you! Look fwd to more in the future.

Your box is awesome. The Incra system really helps in making accurate cuts, I may have to get one. Thanks for sharing.

I have the Ts 32 on the table saw and the ts 17 on the router table. my grandpa has the new ls on his table saw and i like the lead screw micro adjustment better and its a lot smoother. I really like about everything about them they do take up a bit of room when moved all the way extended. I also found out the hard way it takes a really flat router table and plate to make good fitting joints. set up is hard without a router lift or a router that can be micro adjusted. once the set up is figured out the rest of the process it a breeze. if you get a incra system i suggest getting there projects book its full of helpful tips and processes that really help in learning the system the DVD they make is good to have to. thank for your comments

Those are fantastic looking! How do they open? Can you show pictures of the inside?

I made something similar in High School shop class for my vast collection of Magic: The Gathering cards. Not nearly this well done or sophisticated mind you….. very well done, they look awesome. :)
