« Part 41: New Outfeed table and shop cart Part 42 of Evolution of a Shop series Part 43: Drill press cart part 1 »

I was able to get a few more things completed on my outfeed table:

I cut out the handle area on the dividers, which makes it much easier to grab them. I also glued a small block on the back so the bins don’t slide all the way to the rear of the opening.

The top three slots are a little more narrow than the rest, so I turned them into drawers. I’m keeping sanding supplies in there since this is where 99% of the sanding I do takes place.

I also built drawers where I was keeping my compressor.

And put some drawer fronts on them.

This led me to building a little table of sorts to sit my compressor on. The space between my outfeed table and table saw was pretty wasted and this allows me to take advantage of it. The table straddles the dust collection port of the TS.

Now if I can just figure out what I want to do about the top….

Thanks for looking.

Stellar job, Cory,

Looks like you’re getting it just the way you want it…..Lots of drawers and storage in the table….The more storage we have, the better off we are…lol….I always enjoy seeing your work, and you do good craftsmanship..I can see you’re kind of particular about things…..just like me….My motto is: If it don’t fit right or work right, it ain’t worth a damn…...I think your’s is fit and work just fine…...
