Pimp My Table Saw (EYE Candy)

Not much progress on the actual garage lately… I'm waiting for someone to help me put the electrical together. Its a little over my head, since I need to reroute entire circuits, add 220, etc.

So instead I've been working on my table saw.

Here's where it started, with a used DeWalt 746 hybrid table saw. Honestly I've never given Hybrids much thought. I had always drooled over the new Unisaw and Sawstop. But I came across this little gem and love it! Its powerful (2hp), smooth, quiet, portable, and has full dust collection around the blade. And it was a killer deal.

And since my new shop is even smaller than my old shop, I am unfortunately going to have to downsize somehow. So I am combining my table saw and router table, and SELLING this:

For Sale: $350 obo (the materials alone cost more than that) Send me a message if you are interested



I loved my router table. But it is huge, and I don't have the space anymore. But the main advantage of combining my router table/saw is that I can use the same Incra fence for both :)

I just need to set a series of calibrated stops for the router and saw. I will need two positions for the saw, at 0-16" and 16-32", since I only have the 17" positioner (if you are familiar with Incra products you will know what I mean. http://www.incramentaltools.com) But the positioner holds several sliding scales so I can have one dedicated to each position.

Here is the beginning of the fence installation, for which I only needed to order the TS rails. I am just using the positioner off the old router table:

Once the fence rails were installed, I built the two table saw wings/extensions. My DW 746 came with those flimsy stamped steel extensions. So I removed them and built my own with two layers of 3/4" birch plywood, surrounded by a hardwood boarder and white laminate on top.

Once these were mounted to the TS rails on the saw, I used my original router template to cut the opening for the router lift. I had actually saved it from when I made my first router table… just in case!

Then I used the Incra fence, which was conveniently already installed, as a guide to rout a channel for the router miter track, which went just a few inches to the left of the router.

Finally I added a zero-clearance insert and after a little tuning up, my saw was pretty much complete!

I think the only thing left is to build a box around the router lift for dust collection and noise reduction. It will also include a magnetic safety switch.
Blake, thats awesome! Always wanted to add a router into my tablesaw. Good use of otherwise "wasted" space. Good work.

What a fine job done.
It will be a lovely work station.

I've had that Dewalt tablesaw for about ten years, love it. I have the sliding table where you have your router. Built a melamine box inside the legs for dust collection (ditched the shroud setup, works great). Sharkguard guy makes a quick release splitter set for it.

Help from Todd Clippinger

So, lots of progress. Where did we leave off? Something like this… (its getting better in terms of organization)

Tire Wheel Bicycle Bicycle wheel Building


Finally it was time to call in the big guns. Todd Clippinger has been begging me for some woodworking lessons ever since he found out about me so I finally let him come all the way over from Montana to California to work with me and pick up some mad skills ;)

Wood Window Hardwood Building Event


Well we ripped up the place and did a ton of electrical work, installed a window, moved a door, and he also relieved me of my worst enemy… the kitchen slider door.

"Good riddance old door"

Plant Window Automotive lighting Television set Automotive exterior


"Hello new slider!" ...I still have some painting to do.

Building Door Fixture Wood House


Meanwhile I started building the enclosed laundry "room"...

Wood Floor Flooring Electrical wiring Gas


And heres another random progress shot I found on my phone:

Table Wood Shelf Desk Building


And with my garage still in shambles, I had to let Todd get back to MT. But It sure was great to finally meet this old friend and kindred spirit craftsman.

Joint Chin Shorts Shoulder Muscle


The next step has been nagging at me since we moved in… hanging the bikes on the ceiling.

I bought these pulley system kits over a year ago. And this seemingly simple project sort-of kicked my ass. I must have re-arranged and re-engeneered them like half-a-dozen times before I got them all to fit in the small section of the garage that has high ceilings. The challenges included getting them to not interfere with each other/the walls/garage door/etc., and attaching them to the sloped ceiling… way to many trips up and down the ladder.

But once I got them up my garage floor got WAY bigger :)

Maybe now I can start making it look like a proper shop? Stay tuned.

Sheetrock & Saw Bench

Still making progress. Here's a small update.

Here is a random photo I took at some point. It shows where the saw bench will go and also the partially-framed laundry area to the far right:

Building Wood Table Gas Workbench


I've been hanging sheetrock for weeks in my spare time:

White Light Wood Line Flooring


Tire Wheel Bicycle tire Bicycle Bicycle wheel


This is my old tool box. Its has served me well for many years but its not the most efficient use of space, and I need to make use of every inch in this tiny shop. So its gotta go. I sold it on Craigslist:

Cabinetry Drawer Wood Hardwood Gas


And started building the new chop saw bench with will have the new tool box built into it. Here's the frame being assembled in the driveway:

Wood Plant Window Flooring Floor


And here it is getting installed:

Wood Flooring Floor Hardwood Gas


In goes the new tool box:

Sink Wood Tap Floor Flooring


And here it is mostly installed. I haven't built the left leg support in this photo yet.

Table Grille Wood Hood Floor


The new tool box is SO nice and gives me a lot of breathing room for my tools.

So I have to admit that these photos are actually several weeks old and I have actually made WAY more progress but haven't taken photos yet. So stay tuned… more to come.

Blake,

It's nice to see your progress. You must be anxious to have it finished and be able to get back to crafting some more fabulous furniture pieces.

It's coming along nicely Blake and looking good. I'm surprised you didn't "inset" the miter saw. Do you have plans to build up around it? Also, I noticed the Husky x-horse temporarily holding up the left side of the bench. What a handy tool those are. I saw them on "Cool Tools" when it was on and had to have them. They are far sturdier than any saw horse I have seen.

The new tool box is SO nice and gives me a lot of breathing room for my tools.

So I have to admit that these photos are actually several weeks old and I have actually made WAY more progress but haven't taken photos yet. So stay tuned… more to come.
Lenny: Yep, the saw will be "inset" when I'm done.

Sheetrock & Saw Bench

Still making progress. Here's a small update.

Here is a random photo I took at some point. It shows where the saw bench will go and also the partially-framed laundry area to the far right:

I've been hanging sheetrock for weeks in my spare time:

This is my old tool box. Its has served me well for many years but its not the most efficient use of space, and I need to make use of every inch in this tiny shop. So its gotta go. I sold it on Craigslist:

Cabinetry Drawer Wood Hardwood Gas


And started building the new chop saw bench with will have the new tool box built into it. Here's the frame being assembled in the driveway:

And here it is getting installed:

In goes the new tool box:

And here it is mostly installed. I haven't built the left leg support in this photo yet.

Dear Blak. My name is Carlos Madrid. I live in Sweden and I'm looking for a machine designated for cutting pieces of leather and internet I came to your address on it I see that you have one of those machine gun-shaped, well and wonder what is the truth is a machine for cutting strips of leather like goat or goat, is used in the art of saddlery. I wonder if you sell I live in Sweden and that machines do not exist or are in Scandinavia, selling it as it is what you want for it ??. A cordial greetings to you from Sweden Stockholm. A hug !! and Happy New Year 2015.

DONE!

Pretty much done.

Obviously there is a long list of finishing touches that I will be working on throughout the winter. But after about 3 years its finally a woodshop. And an art studio. And a ton of storage. And a built-in laundry. And remember that I was able to fit this all into a one car garage.

One of my goals, other than to have a kick ass work space, was to show what was possible in a one car garage. I wanted to be a bit of an inspiration to other woodworkers who don't have much space. I'm going to work on fine-tuning it for the next year or so and then I'd like to submit it to Wood Magazine or some other publication.

I also wanted this to be a multi-use creative space for the whole family. My wife needed a space for her art, and we have two young boys (1 & 3) who are already beginning to appreciate it… our 3 year old loves to "play tools like Daddy."

Ok, picture time:

Looking North: Most of the tools on this side are on mobile bases so I can easily move them away from the wall or even outside if necessary.

Looking South at the mite saw bench: I built-in my tool chest because its a much more efficient use of space than having it on rollers with space all around it. The open space below is currently home for my air compressor and shop vac. I will eventually build a lean-to on the outside of the garage and add a dust collector.

West end (art studio). The laundry is on the left, covered with curtains (for now). That little wood door encloses the water heater. We covered the door to the garage with paint chips, which adds some color and makes it look like a painter's studio. Also the backsplash for the art counter was salvaged from the paint department sign from Home Depot. It is a bunch of paint sticks dipped in different colors of paint. I got it as a 4'x8' sheet (the paint sticks were glued to a sheet of plywood) and I cut it into strips for the backsplash.

Bikes: The bikes are on a really cool pulley system I got on Amazon. They come down like a mini blind with one pull of the string. You can also see the hatch door for the drop ladder. There is a ton of storage up there, you can even stand up. Also there is open storage above the laundry area (to the right in this photo). Right now it is filled with crap for a yard sale but it will become lumber storage. I have a shed in the back yard for more lumber storage.

I've updated the photos on my WORKSHOP page as well. Thanks for looking!
