I’ve been a LumberJock Wallflower for quite some time, reading forums, admiring projects, and generally enjoying the site, but its finally time that I pose a question that I have not found good answers for in my research.
I work within a standard 20×20 two car garage and am considering building a 4’x4’ assembly/outfeed/router table to conserve space. I have an idea of what I want, but I would like to hear some input from the LJ community on the wisdom of this approach and to collect some ideas on design and construction.
Current concept: – torsion box top with one interior grid large enough to accomodate the router table insert and made with 3/4 MDF on top and bottom. – Woodpecker insert plate – multi-track miter slot – fence system from my table top router table – said fence riding in t-track – table top skined with removable laminate – base made of plywood cabinets for bit storage – dust collection port on the outside of the cabinet to hook up my shop vac. – simple wall-type light switch for the router and shop vac
Any advice and/or examples of similar applications would be appreciated. Thanks.
