« Part 11: Almost done with one end Part 12 of Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog series Part 13: Another drawer down »

Well I didn’t get to really put in anymore time over the long weekend than I would have over a regular weekend. Actually even less, so not a lot of progress. Did add a line to draw dust out of the router enclosure to where I’ll connect to it in the back of the workstation. I know I really shouldn’t have a 90 degree turn in the line but it’s a fairly small enclosure and I never really expected to be able to draw all of the dust anyway.

Apart from that, all I got done was lining the dust collection are below the saw with laminate after putting in a piece separating the router dust line.. I probably didn’t really need to add the laminate, but I figured it might help move the sawdust.

I’ve had the stand that dad had built for the saw in the back yard. I held on to it figuring I’d get a picture of it next to the new workstation once it was done. However, I never covered it so it got badly weathered and I decided it needed to go. I did get a couple of shots of it next to the workstation though.

As you can see the new stand isn’t a lot deeper than the old one, but is a good bit longer. The old one’s actually a little shorter than shown here because I had it on a furniture dolly.

It was also time for the old router table to go so I went ahead and took a pic of it as well. When I built it, I had two limiting factors. One, the top was a laminate top dad already had in his shop. It was just the right size to fit between the fence rails on the table saw which I wanted. Two, I wanted it to be tall enough to match the height of the saw table. It worked out well after I was done and that’s part of the reason when I decided to start this project that I’d have the router table be a part of it. It’s really what I was already used to. Now I have pretty much the same set up, it’s just integrated instead of being stand alone. Also I now have a little more storage too.
