The workshop - center of creativity.
It is a surrounding giving you peace and time to relax when building great and awesome furnitures.
An essential for every workshop!
Since my workshop and even other rooms were cluttered with lumber pieces I decided to build this organizer to have all pieces at a one site and organized by lumber size.
My focus on this project:
- Large vertical support and plenty of space
- avoid bending of stored lumber which often occured as result of leaning against a wall. Click here for detailed project page (build video, build snapshots, description and plans).
Dust separation is another important essential in every workshop - even in a small one. A cyclone dust collector is a pretty efficient way to do this. My built is pretty efficient, you won't hardly find any dust in your shop vac. I use this separator together with all my hand tools and also for my table saw.
Another major thing for everyone's workshop is an efficient dust collection system. Getting rid of the dust and keeping it out of your lungs especially for a small shop - this is a crucial thing to have.
Also connected to my table saw, the results are great.
My first saw I have bought was a track saw, the Festool TS55. So before I got a table saw, I had to cut all lumber by my track saw and I often had been faced with cutting a small strip out of a narrow board.
This is hardly possible with the track saw with its pretty broad rail guide which is about to tip over if the underlying board is to narrow.
So I have thought about how to use my workbench as work piece extension so I could use the rail guide without any issues.
The base of your workshop. Your whole workflow is depending on your workbench. Easily enhance it for a router table.
- versatile workbench
- very stable
- fast to build
- preferable low budget
- exchangeable top
This Jig is a 2in1. First, it is a fence for a mobile router, this is useful when using router bits without ball bearings on larger work pieces. Another feature is the dust collection function which works awesome if you are rounding edges for example. If you ever have shaped edges by a router you may have noticed the mess which is emerged.
The moment will absolutely certain show up when you are going to have the need for a router circle.
There are many use cases where you can use one. You won't use it too often but it's a must have in a workshop. I have used mine for my cyclone dust collector build on which I had to build the adapter from pipe to barrel and the lid for the pvc pipe.
