Default Projects for the Shop

So I was feeling the need to build something that would keep my band saw blades protected and organized when not being used and I came across a plan to build a wall hung case, picture 1. I had built a cabinet that was going to hang near my drill press and had built two of them so I decided to use one to store my hand held routers, picture 2 & 3. Pictures 4-8 show the table saw cabinet which is on wheels and fits under the auxiliary table. The last image is the foundation to the outfeed stands that will have three different tops to choose from made from soft maple. Of course none have finishes on them just yet.

You must not be married......Actually my office is usually a mess with piles of stuff all over the desk but the shop, well it needs to stay reasonably clean. First it was because of out Golden but we lost her 2 weeks ago to cancer and to be honest that really hasn't fully set in. But then I also need to keep it clean so neither my wife or I trip and fall on anything. I've been so use to vacuuming after working on stuff and with the CV1800, multiple outlets and the long hose and floor tool it really means an extra 5-10 minutes and everyone is happy. Stuff is put away and tools cleaned off. Now if I could do that in my office it would be far easier to find things.....sometimes.

Herb,


That's from a set of plans I bought a few years ago from Wood Magazine. It's dated 2001 so the hardware references are a bit dated. It's their 3-in-1 Outfeed table. With 3 different table tops, one having a slick plastic top, another with 5/8" rollers, and the third a plywood flat top. It has extension rails to adjust the height. I'll post pics if I ever get it finished. Need to get my jointer back up and running and hopefully that will be this Friday.

Nice shop. I have some small plastic drawers under the table saw, but the much wider setup you have would work much better. My office(s) inside and outside (shed) are remarkably messy.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Great job on the storage under the saw. After seeing yours, I have to remind myself to never post a photo of mine.
