Long project for me, but I am glad I saw it through. Created a ton of storage and a great place to keep my sustainers. Using the station has been a blessing from what I was doing before, I learned a lot about making cabinets and drawers – and learned a lot from making multiple mistakes :-). However, was able to work through the mistakes to make the end project. Idea for this came from a combination of Jay Bates, Tyler G, and Eric from the Poplar Shop.

Very nice. But the real question is….....where are you going to hang your “booty pirate flag” now

Excellent job, great organization always makes tasks more enjoyable. I need to get started on my station. This may be the motivation I need.

Keep up the great work

Pottz – The dust collection is pretty decent – the miter saw is the Bosch Axel Glide miter saw. Dust collection is better than my previous miter saw – not as good as a festool. However I figured I could buy 3 of these to the festool. How I have it in the station makes for easy clean up for what the hose does not catch.

Pottz – I use to have a 12’ Hitachi but went with a 10” on the Bosch. There is a Canadian woodworker that had the 10” that I wrote to and asked him why not the 12”. He replied his table saw used 10” blades and this way he didn’t have to buy blades twice, and frankly he didn’t really need the extra width. Made sense to me and the 10” has been great.
