Thought I’d post an update of the progress so far. Had a water leak so that delayed some things for a while and am back in project mode.

This was a test build of some cabinets I want in there. I plan on making some sliding doors in a shoji style. Found some tough shoji paper that should hold up well.

I wanted a router table with height adjustment built into the top. The Triton router has this feature built in so you don’t have to purchase a separate lifting mechanism. The table I copied from a German woodworker, Andreas Kalt. It needs to be reworked as its sagging. The wood on the side is just not enough to weight. I like the concept though and will probably keep it like this. I’ll build a box for the saw and store the table in it while not is use.

I found that my little Skil drill press was. It up for much strenuous drilling without locking up. I like older tools so I picked up an old Delta press from the 40’s and restored it. Sorry for no complete pic but this is what I’ve got so far. It turned out great and is such a beast. Picked up a few missing bolts on eBay and the motor needed some work which I had a local shop do. Love using it.

I love French cleats! Gong this route opened up so many possibilities and overcame my analysis paralysis of where to put things. So simple to reconfigure.

A test board of a project for my Grandaughter. Practiced hand routing and colored epoxy. Finished project to follow shortly.
