No project or video to show this week. I let time get away from me while working on other things.
I’ve been spending a lot of time lately planning upcoming projects. One is a quick action router lift and the other is a miter saw station wall with tons of organization options. This is just a quick video showing where I am at.
The main thing for the router lift was to design something that is quickly adjustable and will drop quickly below the table surface. I also wanted repeatability so I could quickly return to where I was if I need to use the table saw real quick. I also want to incorporate full dust collection into the lift via two options. One would be a 4″ dust collection port below the table surface and the other would be via a shopvac hose in the router fence. This will give some options to those out there who don’t have a dedicated dust collection setup.
The miter saw station will have larger drawers and/or pull out shelves for large tools on the bottom. On the work surface and behind the miter saw fence will be shallow drawer storage for items such as hardware bins and short tools such as hand saws, chisels, and maybe my planes. Above that will be adjustable divider storage for quick access to tools that are used commonly. And finally, above that will be another ceiling mounted row of storage similar to what I did above the garage door. It’s a little ambitious but I that’s the direction I’m headed right now.
