I’m temporarily out of work (tech industry), so I took some time to finish up my shop. (No, it’s never really finished, but it’s better than it was…)
Learned a few things from the prior shop. Hence, some spiffy features in this one:
cabinets are hung from the wall, resting on the sill plate. Leaves some room underneath for storage.
put everything up on mobile bases. Makes it much nicer when i need to pull the truck in the garage to work on it.
Built the flip-top planer table from FWW Tools & Shops 2008 (p. 51). Slight modification, in that I changed the measurements of the top so that the planer is level with the Tablesaw for outfeed– and the reverse top is also level with the TS for a support table.
Plexiglass shields around the SCMS – keeps the dust confined to the one section. built in some T-track to the front of the counter. I made a flip-top attachment that then works as a stop for the SCMS.
Finally finished all the drawers- full dovetail for strength, and rearranged the organization to better fit with functional areas of the shop. Man, that makes a HUGE difference.
Better lighting, although I still have some ground to cover in that area.
Comments, questions, and suggestions are all welcome. Next up is a bigger dust collector. The 1HP doesn’t cut it
Anyway, here it is…
