Long time listener; first time caller.
After many years of “woodworking”—I use that term loosely, because all my life I’ve worked in a messy garage using hand-me-down tools, usually stumbling over and around clutter, never having enough room to do things right—I’m finally clearing out and organizing and upgrading my tools to be a lot more functional. And, in the process, learning the RIGHT way to do things. It’s about time, right?
Anyway, I have a piece of laminate countertop from an old kitchen island that I want to turn into an outfeed/router table to marry with the new cast iron table saw I just purchased.
While looking around for design ideas, I stumbled on a number of configurations. I have an idea which one I think I want, but I figured I’d put it out to y’all with way more experience than I ever hope to have.
I’ve posted a photo showing a few I’ve seen, for idea starters. So what say ye? What’s your favorite configuration? Router table on the right? Left? Forward of the saw? Or other?
Thanks. Can’t wait to hear your feedback.
