Default A great idea

I get a lot of woodworking emails from various sources, but today I got one that really stood out and wanted to share it with everyone. Looks like it would make extra use of some otherwise dead space.

Check it out.

I like that Bob, I need a little more counter space from time to time plus it will help keep that other idiot (my evil twin) for putting popcans on the table and causing some rust. Opps I think I just told every body that I have not waxed my table saw top.

Note to self, was table saw top.

Good idea. I bring everything out on the patio to work on a dolly I built. I don't have workspace indoors. The table over the table saw is peachy.

I got some cheap scratch and dent masonite ($2.00/sheet) at the hardware store. Made a perfect work surface!

Canuck,

Nice work, my router is rather smallish so I'm thinking sawhorse, table extension; would benefit by having a bigger table as well as bigger table saw working area when using that tool; or perhaps folding or telescoping legs attached to the table saw? I'll have to devise a scheme.

Sweaty I love that saw! Best investment I ever made. But I'm inclined to say that about most of my tools. LOL
