Sounds like a good start. Sorry to hear about the space problems. Your downdraft table / router extensions are good solutions…. However you might consider converting the right side extension to a more traditional woodworking bench top with a vise mount and bench dog holes to maximize the space. Just keep this one stowed away somewhere to plop on top when you need the dust collection….

Whope, it looks like you are off to a good start on your shop. You made some nice upgrades to your saw. I used this same saw for over a decade and the weakest point about it was the fence. With the addition of the Vega upgrade you solved this issue.

I am sorry about your shop loss during the winter but can well appreciate where you are coming from. I have often said that I am glad we added another garage in our basement when we built our home which I later converted into a shop. If I had to ask my wife to give up her garage space so that I could have some shop space, I would be outside in the weather before her vehicle would be.

Looks like some practical solutions. Does your buget, and location allow for renting a space ?

No room in the budget now. Looks like I’ll be able get some more storage inside the house and get rid of a bicycle, a dozen bags of concrete (deck or no deck) and a small wardrobe, which takes up as much space as a band saw ;)

All comments above this are for my shop that was in a garage. The photo is of the current space (which isn’t as clean as the photo).
