My new Ridgid work station getting finished. I started to build it a half year ago and finally I could paint it. You can see my built in table saw, jointer planer, and my kreg jig installed. I Plan to add a router lift for my PC 7518 on the right side of the table saw but first I have to save some money for that.
The table saw and the jointer sitting on adjustable bases. All tools going to be hooked up to a dust collection system in the future and I plan to install an air compressor too. But the best thing is to easy to move the hole station and save some space in my garage.

Thanks for looking!

That is extremely cool! Did you come up with the design on your own?

Thats nice. Might i ask what the black handle to the left of the table saw in the pic (actually behind it) is? It’s Black on top and it appears the melamine might be in two pieces beyond where it is as well.

Charlie: Yes I designed it. First, I just wanted to build an outfeed table for my saw but this is the actual result.

Mike: I plan to build a shelf under the jointer where you can see the end of the 2×6’s. I try to keep it close to the jointer for the fast installation when it’s needed.

interesting, though i doubt i’d see myself putting my jointer and table saw on the same workstation, the thought of putting the fence on every time doesn’t really appeal to me, i’d much rather have it set one to 90 and avoid touching it as much as possible…

none the less, very interesting approach. What’s the overall dimensions?

Awesome job! I planning on building a big outfeed table / workbench for the same TS, but you took it to a whole new level. Looks great!

I like it, but removing the jointer fence bugs me. Just IMHO that’s all…

One thing I noticed is that there is no provision to put your splitter and guard on. Do you use your splitter?

DGunn: Yes I use it just have to make a notch on the motor access panel then I can install it.

Others: Removing the jointer fence easy and quick on the Ridgid jointer because it comes off in one piece and if I am careful then no problem with the 90.
