Default New Multi Saw/Router Table/Stand

I just saw this on a Canadian site and it looks pretty interesting for breaking down or working on large sheet materials. A little pricey though.

Looks like a nice tool but a little low to the ground. I built my own guide, a piece of 3/4 ply glued to a wider piece of 1/4 ply. The first cut with the skillsaw trims off the excess 1/4" so that the edge of the guide is the cutline. No measuring offsets that way. Between that and a pair of sawhorses does almost as good a job and cost very little.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That is interesting. Thanks for showing it.

I'm not sure what the US price would be but it seems quite expensive for what it is.
For now, I think I'll stick to using my cutting table and a straight edge. They aren't quite as portable as this appears to be, but are much less expensive and can do everything that this can.
