Welcome Scott! I like the use of space in your shop as well as the shop itself. Unfortunately after you think it through that is something you are going to have to decide on based on what you will be making. Here's a link to a Rockler Top that may give you an idea.Hi all, interesting site! Looks like there are several of you who use t-track, so here is my question for you:
I just finished a 4'x8' (top) workbench. I have purchased t-track: 2- 36" tracks and 1- 4-way junction. How do I lay these out?
I want to use them mainly for holding down materials for the miter saw and for sanding.
Do I put them 90 degrees to each other? Parallel? What are your ideas for this? I have included my bench and have the tracks laid out on top for now, but I am hesitant to cut the groove until I know what will work best for me. TIA! View attachment 401519
Most people have a fence for the miter saw which makes clamping a lot easier. I would look at adding a fence rather than t-tracks. You may have an issue cutting a large piece on your table saw with the miter saws location. Their is plenty of space for the t-tracks. Keep in mind you may want to add more tracks later on.
