    Thanks Amazon prime day. Bosch flexi click for $120! Also a heavy duty surge protector for the miter station and white charcoal pencils. These should make it easier to see on the upcoming furniture builds made from cherry and walnut. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    So then it will "work" but not right out of the box. Really seems like they either need to release an update to the mini and midi to align more with the larger vac features. I love the size of my midi but really would like the BT remote feature as well. Our 36AC only comes out on larger jobs. I like the BT also but once again not for the Mini or Midi. It's like they have become the red headed step child. If you want these features you have to step up the the bigger vacs.

    This should calm my addiction until the stubby m12 wrench comes out.

    Pretty good progress again yesterday. I got all of the drawer fronts attached and about to put the third coat of poly on. I then made the rough stock for the handles for the drawers. I jointed, planed, and then glued up some maple for the handles like I did the sliding doors. I had to wait until for the glue to set so I could cut them out and round over the edges. Before bed I made a holder for my shop vac hose. This is a long time coming and already loving it. Keeping it off the ground is going to be so nice. I also tried to clean up stuff on the floor like boxes and scrap wood. Today I got the handles cut out and rounded over. I'm trying to decide how I want to attach them. Should I make them like the sliding doors with the screws visible from the front or should I attach them through the back? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I ended up making the pull out tray. Took me about 30 minutes or so. Pretty simple. A piece of plywood with two pieces pocket holed to the base. I over cut the top drawer front and after saw kerf and veneer it should end up perfect height wise. Continuous grain pattern for the win. I still need to attach the front of the pull out tray. Up next will be to make the rest of the drawer/door pulls. Then sand and finish! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Updated pic. The dust shroud is on. I cut it short so I had to make some spacer blocks. I attached it with magnets to nuts screwed into the miter station. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    So I raised the drawers up and I'm glad i did. It was easy to do as well. I got the two lower drawer fronts on and am at a conundrum. With the space under the drill press I could potentially put a pull out flat surface to place plans or other items. If I did this I would need to make the top shelf not go up as high. What says you? Good idea or not worth it? I attached a pic with a drawer slide in there for reference. I also go the dust shroud for the miter saw made. All that is left to do is sand the edges and attach it. I would like for it to be removable to use the miter function on the saw. I have to work in a few hours (picked up a shift on my day off) so I'm calling it quits for the night.

    Milwaukee uses Dremel accessories too. I use the Dremel flex hose and blade guard all the time on mine.

    I have been in dire need of a miter station for I don't know how long now. With building my hand tool cabinet I had to move my miter saw to the other bench. Well that just isn't working. There is no dust collection besides the shop vac hose and the Bosch has miserable DC to begin with so it really isn't any help. With my limited space I needed to put my drill press in the miter station as well. That presented some design issues that needed to be addressed. I think I have them worked out though. Since I haven't taken the time to learn SketchUp or fusion 360 yet, I draw out all of my plans. This make me actually math sometimes which is fine. Don't judge my super sweet drafting skills. Thanks miter station will be 104" wide. Ill have slightly over 6' to the right and 2.5' to the left. To the left of the miter station is 3 more feet to the wall. I currently store my planer flip top cart there. There is also a door there. So if a longer space is really needed I can just open the door. The bottom right will be open as that is my crawl space access. It works out for me anyways as I keep the shop vac and air compressor there. Nothing should change there. It will have 4 spaces for drawers. They won't be super wide as I won't have the space. I think they come out to 11", 11.5", and 14.5" wide, plus whatever the final saw space needed is. Yesterday I went and bought three sheets of 3/4" maple plywood. I had one already at home. This will get me the carcass construction and base top at least. I haven't figured out a drawer layout so that will come later. I might keep some of it open for cutoff storage. Today I started to break down the plywood. I broke two down at 24"x36.25". I had maple veneer left over from the armoire build and used it to veneer the front faces. [emoji16] My current bench is 37" and I like the height. I'm 6'1" so it measures out pretty nicely. I used my kreg jig and drilled the holes out for two of the cabinets. I got one of them assembled today before the gym and work. I'll put the other one together tomorrow. If I had a Makita oil impulse impact I would do it after work tonight lol. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Very happy with the last days progress! First I got all of the handles finished and installed. I put finish on the stop block system as well. All I need to do is put the tape on. I'm slacking on that because I want to do it right even though I have a way to adjust the stop block. Tonight I made the router accessories sliding door insert. I think I have room to grow [emoji23]. The extra holes allows me to get more bits but also space them out to make it easier to pull the bits out. They are snig in there. I might round over the holes. Then I will sand and apply poly. I'll glue in the dowels for the collets after it's finished. *Note to self....move up drill press table in the list of shop projects to be built.* The drill press couldn't reach all of the holes so I used my milescraft drill press to finish the job. Worked great. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I am owner of a Porter Cable 7538 now. It was a gift to me from my uncle. It is the first 3+ hp router I have owned. It will also be the first 3+ hp router I will have used not counting shapers. I was surprised to see he included a Whiteside bit.

    I’ve got the cyclone on my Midi and right now my 26 doesn’t have one. I’m really toying with getting this, I do all of my routing and track saw use with the 26 where as my Midi is dedicated to my Kapex.
