Sachse, TX 75048
United States

My small but efficient shop that is forever a work in progress as I always find way to more efficiently store my tools and extra lumber. I started out with a rolling work bench that houses my dewalt table saw and router mounted under the additional table. When the router and the table saw blade are both retracted I have a portable 2’x4’ work bench. Next I built a stationary bench that houses my miter saw and gives me 2’x4’ of work space on one end and 2’x2’ of work space on the other. When I have the portable bench stowed next to the permanent bench it gives me 2’x6’ of work space on the short end. It’s not a lot but I only have a limited amount of space in my 2 car garage to be able to park both mine and the wife’s car inside.

Working inside of the garage where you park, definitely makes you very steadfast keeping things organized and put away (or face the wrath of the wife!). Added bonus you don’t have as much area to sweep and vacuum after a day’s work.

Thank you all for the welcome. Yes, I definitely have to keep everything in order and in place so that I don’t keep stepping on tools and so the wife stays happy!!!

Your tablesaw station is awesome. I have the same saw and have been looking for a design similar to yours. How did you construct your fence?

Thank you. The rip fence is built from plans I purchased from.

The guy has some pretty cool shop jigs he made plans for.
