OK, probably got some attention with that headline.
Sitrep- Just moved from CA to NY to be back with family.
For some reason, routing seems to really interest me, so the new place is going to see the 2-car garage actually be used as a 1-car and woodworking/general tomfoolery shop.
So I’ve been drooling over all the workbench porn I’ve been seeing, however bootstrapping from saw horses to bench to routing seems to be potentially a long journey.
I feel like I am cheating, however even though I am paying for essentially 4×4’s, being able to just cut some 2×4 on my new 12” sliding mitre seems like a compromise to move ahead quickly.
The real question I have is, would I be stupid to try and make this into a combined table saw and router table?
Or, would this be a special kind of stupid, and I should perhaps just leave the TS on the small bench it is currently attached to, build something similar for the router table, and leave the bench as a bench?
Don’t expect to be building large cabinets or doors, etc, just smaller stuff that most neophytes would.
Appreciate any comments, suggestions.
