« Part 1: Shop update - Two months gone by since last update. Part 2 of My shop series Part 3: Join me as I try to work out the details of building a new shop »

Sorry this is so long
Now that all the electric is done, insulation, walls up and painted I can move onto the essentials. This will be two cabinets with six draws opposite each other and where you see the router lift will be a box set back about 16” I will put a box with a dust port on the back that will hook into the table saws dust port with a blast gate for when I use the saw as well as one for the router. In front of the router just under the top will be a 11” wide by 12” deep draw for the wrenches, inserts and lift crank handle below that will be another two draws 11” X 20” for just bits. There will be oak face frames on all three sides and the rest will be laminated with 1/4” oak plywood.
The top is going to be ply wood (Baltic Birch) torsion box dressed with Oak and attached to the table saw and the business side of the fence, the back rail will come off and an out feed table will be incorporated with shelves as well as a Baltic birch top with guides for a panel sled to ride on and will be about 49” after the blade.
Thats the plan any way I will add pictures as I get more done these next few weeks.

That’s going to be a very convenient work center.

A place for everything and everything in it’s place.
