One plus to using the stop block is that the part being joined can be set in place and located by the stop block so it doesn't spread glue all over the place.Thanks for the post Tom . I like your idea of clamping a piece of wood to hold things in place when your putting the screws in . I'm finding that I have overtightened a few , so now I start with a drill , but finish with a screw driver . Gives me a better feel , but I'm sure seasoned pocket hole pros would scoff at my idea lol.
I assumed you used glue , but couldn't see any excess . I'm not to good with the glue ups yet
As I "stole" your design, I had a little time to look at the options, but always planned to put drawers underneath - as has been said, you can never have enough storage. I actually set up the stringers for the scissor jacks so they would provide support for the cabinets - they go across the frame rather than fore-and-aft like yours so they provide a platform for the cabinets. I went with the three shallow drawers on each side because the plan was to use them to keep all the little odds and ends handy to the work area. The legs overhang the 2x4 frame so I had to shorten the cabinet to suit and put spacer blocks on either side.Good idea on the block as a back up. I have done that more than once myself. Yeah, don't believe those videos. I think there may be some creative editing going on there.
Well, you got my attention. I went out and looked at my router table. I think I can do the same thing, maybe just on one side. With everything cramped up, I can't get to the other side anyway. Even one drawer would be helpful to hold the crank, hex key, Kreg insert wrench, collet wrenches, and a few other things. Thanks for giving me something else to do! :grin:
