Here is my most recent creation. It’s my Jim byrnes table saw station. Great lil addition to the shop for cutting small parts/ model building. Built from solid maple and maple ply. Bench space is valuable in my shop so I figured why not incorporate it into the outfeed table of my bandsaw. Because of the way Jim has designed his saw, the fence is not the quickest thing to take on and off. No biggie but having the fence stick up around an 1” would affect the outfeed of my bandsaw. (And I do a lot of ripping on the bandsaw) so I designed the station to accommodate two different heights. One level the tablesaw is flush with my outfeed and the the other is around “1-1/2 below. I mounted the saw with machine screws on a base with rubber feet. I can micro adjust the table saw perfectly flush with the stations extension tables. The whole stand then has four leveling feet that then allows me to adjust perfect to my bandsaw outfeed. The base the Byrne is mounted to slides effortlessly between both positions on two hard wood cleats sealed and waxed. I also incorporated the dust collection fitting that comes on the Byrne saw to align perfectly to an integrated hookup concealed in the right extension box. Two short drawers in the front right side makes it pretty slick. I made a custom cover that lays flush with my outfeed to protect the lil Byrnes when not in use. I really Love this saw so far! Very accurate and well made lil piece of equipment. It’s funny seeing such a small saw in a shop surround by machines almost 10x it’s weight. :)

And of course you can never add to many drawers. (Like clamps)

Very efficient. Have you done a review on the saw? I am not familiar with it.

Hello my young friend
The days have come and gone and I’ve watched and waited. Very nice job son though I know this is something far below your capabilities. It’s nice to see your engineering skills developing along with your passion and perfection for woodworking. These are the projects that fill the hunger while we decide on out next masterpiece and also add to the function and beauty of our studios. I would love to see pictures of your shop (studio) Ill bet it’s come a long way and shows your passion for the art that fills your heart. That little stand is gorgeous and shows the quality of your craftsmanship and passion even when it’s just a stand for a tool in your shop. Never stray from that quality even when it’s just a simple insignificant project. Make it a masterpieces in itself. There is much thought that went into that little stand and you did a remarkable job to make it look beautiful also. I don’t know you other than from this site but I am proud of you and what you are becoming. I was so happy when I seen you had posted a new project. My young friend I know something’s brewing in your mind. The curio was and is a masterpiece of your skills but it’s not enough is it. It’s just a stepping stone which fuels that desire to create something even more spectacular. It never stops until your body gets old like mine and refuses to let you continue. I hope the good lord blesses me with enough time to see your next creation. I know it’s coming I can feel it. You see my young friend you are me many many years ago and it brings me great joy to watch you and your woodworking grow. Build on my young friend
