Hi Guys,
My first post, just wanted to show off my new workbench. I have a small garage, but always wanted a big cabinet saw with a biesmeyer style fence. But simply didn’t have the space or budget. After seeing Ron Paulk’s excellent video series (and purchasing his plans, money well spent!), I decided to build my own. The bench can be easily dismantled and stored if I need to use the garage for a car. Having the wide rip capacity is great. It’s also remarkable stable & accurate. I also appricate the smaller footprint of having the saw onboard rather than hanging off the back.
Special thanks to Ron Paulk for the inspiration & to the guys at Very Super Cool Tools for the fence.

The saw is a Dewalt 745, the router lift is a Jessem, The router fence is made from some oak flooring I had left (It’s still to be finished, I still need to add a micro-adjuster.)

Hope you like.

Very nice. Ron would be proud. I bought his plans also for my projects.

Great Job! I love that fence. If I didn’t have the Vega already I would’ve bought that fence in a heartbeat

It’s great to see your bench. I’m working on a similar project using Ron Paulk’s concept but with a lot of built in storage and mobility using casters. I’m not using his plans so much but I bought a set anyway just to pay my tribute to his creative thinking.

Really cool setup. Great job. I am jealous of your fence. I can imagine it on my ridgid 4512. One day maybe.
