saw looks good man. Need a outfeed table now huh.. do you plan on getting ur bench done soon? Looking forward to seeing that beast finished.. o and what is on the other side of your flip top  tool stand I just couldn't figure it out LOL
I cut the bench down a little to work as an out feed table when I need it. If that doesn't suit my needs I will build one that is attached to the table saw.

I hope so! It's frustrating that it isn't done yet. I'm going to hopefully get it done soon.

It's a grinder. I put it there is I can have enough room to put the Ridgid sander on the same side whenever I buy it. 6d977f44d8068c2dc1dac2a812809611.jpg804af0c708c8a1a3115a4bf0a3a3da14.jpg

That will be cool to see hope you get to finish it up.  

 

That's a good use of it for sure and the Sanders look pretty sweet..

Thanks. It's my favorite shop project to date. Super useful. I took out the left wing to put a router table inside of mine. I kept the right wing in and the box filled in where there was a gap from the wing to the support bar that was there. Pics when you do it.

I will post pics for sure I have been trying to remember to take pictures of the shop projects but always forget until later lol. I will keep updating my shop post on here as I remember lol. My router table went on the right side of mine right were you put the box on yours but I like the idea so much I decided to make it work on the left side

I finally drilled the holes doe the vise screw. The chop is centered perfect but the leg is an 1/8' off errrrrrrrr. Oh well it will be fine. Think I am going to either tonight or tomorrow do a glue up with the leg supports. Still have to do final shaping of the chop as well. 45a5d5339f9c1c503a18b39f72e83fa4.jpg19ae35ddce845425c125e82cba7199b6.jpg

I have a workbench! It isn't finished yet. I still need to sand all the joints and make sure the top mortises are flush. Feel like it but will make sure later. I needed to get this done as it was the only place I could put the aprons for the gaming table up to route in the t bolt access holes. The top isn't glued and honestly I don't think it needs it. I cut a piece of maple plywood in for a shelf as well. I made rabbets earlier in the process for a flush fit. So have castor's that I will put on that you can drop it down to the bar floor. 632b3c08edef8b87d88bbea99ec46d2d.jpg54430da8d00c211bbc78b94eb923cb3d.jpg4bf47e83e429d5ba027d1152968c7082.jpgdc09a96313bf8d661321661fd5d00b74.jpg8dce92953ce929f3e25d9f3a6d006253.jpg

That bench looks awesome man... Looks sturdy as hell to nice job 
Thanks! It seems very solid. I might put my off cuts on the bottom shelf or make a cabinet with lots of drawers. Either will add sufficient weight to the bench as well.

Got some work done after shift tonight! Got the castor's on and 2 coats of Danish oil! She is looking great! The power tech castor's I had bought came with dinky screws. I replaced them with 2" lag screws to be safe. 2 of them broke on me even though I pre drilled. I got one out but the other I had to leave in. I drilled two holes in the bracket and used 2 1/2" kreg screws along with the bottom lag bolts. I don't see it being an issue.

The castor's work extremely well and give a lot of lift. They are rubber and glide over the garage floor.

The Danish oil gave the bench a nice color. I used natural. Almost with I went with a walnut but thought it might be too dark. It looks great though and am happy. It made the cherry dowels really stick out which I was hoping for. Some before during and after pics below.

Still need to finalize a chop design and still waiting on the vise screw. Other than that I think the bench is done. I originally bought an old brod head Garret vise to put on but I don't think I am. It would require me to route a lot of the top out to get it almost flush with the top and i don't want to do that. At some point in the near future I will drill some dog holes. ecc938496c7b17f4de0297fd51ec4f2b.jpg54a4d6e87229d72beec526e077a24320.jpga1ed6168ed93c95c8b0edbccd4dcfba5.jpg83fd07eff6557a9eb70dab6b526f3cf6.jpg03c5f029c23d84bd6efd73a014c9894d.jpgb1724ab08a18fd56facfd583a7b33d84.jpg26e7b2a83968be5786b406f67f61fe25.jpgef89a733a4558998a03e361121533afa.jpg9d731726f3690a0c819604b85c9bbf6a.jpg
