So it has been busy with a new baby and among other things so I haven’t had much of a chance to build anything. I am excited to be able to post again.
This started with the switch going out on my table saw. With limited funds I built this out of scrap lumber which included a few pieces of plywood, mdf, particle board, and even a broken Ikea Cabinet. To make it nice we had some paint left over that I slapped on to make it uniform. I got a fantastic deal on the Delta Fence and was able to use that.
The table saw is the 10” Delta and the Router is Ryobi with table. The doors cover a dust chute under the saw. The drawers add extra storage though I had to use the variety of slides I had left. It still works and I can’t believe the space.
Finally the thing is on casters so I can pull it out in my garage and use it. The front casters lock and I will say with the weight and the casters locked the thing doesn’t move with full sheet press on it.
I have been able to do so much more with this. I can cut 8’x4’ sheets with ease. The routing table is fantastic and it has enable me to do so much with accurate ease and quick adjustments.
It is simple, It is easy, and. . . it is too big. Seriously. I don’t have room in my garage to store it now. Sigh. . . I will have to see if there is an interested party to take it so I can build something much more manageable with space I have.
Too bad – because it turned out better than I expected – especially after the initial plan was to just fix the switch on the saw.
