So after several years of saying I would finally expand the dust collection and improve the miter saw setup I finally got started on it a few weeks ago – of course nothing is simple now is it…

So it gets started – the 400 sq foot shop has been steadily shrinking for a while now so I thought it was time to get it reorganized and try to improve the miter bench setup and provide a lot more dust free storage as well as give me a lot more flat surface area to work with.

The Bosch slider takes up a lot of front side space so that meant the cabinets needed to be 32 inches deep. Dreading the HD selection of plywood I got in the F-150 and went there anyway – expecting to walk out in discussed because they might have had that shoddy Chinese made ply wood again – what I found was that they appeared to have some decent AC grade 7 ply fur plywood – for a reasonable price – true shop grade ¾” ply – unexpected score for me.

Alright enough – it’s not done but I will post the completion pics when it is – I ran out of material last week and I have not have a chance to get back and get more to finish the project.

A good move. If I were just few minutes away from your shop, I’m happy to give you my hands. I enjoy shop cleaning, esp. at night.
Get going Ken_c.
