I want to thank all of you who take the time to post your projects and explain your work processes. I’ve been a lurker since joining this site about six months ago; you all have taught me a lot. You may not know it, but you have helped me immeasurably…as have hundreds of You Tube videos.

I am recently retired and have been devoting my time reacquainting myself with woodworking. Having not made much over the last 30 years other than some oak shelving units in 1990, I decided to start with an essential item to any garage shop – a portable table saw and router bench. It served as my re-education to all things woodworking. Frankly, I’ve learned more designing and building this project as have over the last 40 years of on again off again shop projects.

If one learns from mistakes, I am very well educated. I can’t begin to recount the things I wish I could do over. There are some rube goldberg aspects, but it’s functional. Yet, for a part time garage hobbyist, this combo table saw, router, and storage unit is serving me well.

Okay, I did take the time necessary to design something unique to my needs. I learned to build drawers, install glides, and use a router table for the first time. Heck, I’d never used a router, let alone understood a router table. I am having a blast now. The router top is the only part I didn’t build; it’s a pre-made table saw extension unit by MLCS.

I need the garage for cars, so all of my tools are on wheels. I hope that others can benefit from my humble project as I have from yours. My next project will be a workbench…on wheels, of course.
