Leo, good point about making the tops a skosh shorter than the machine they are used with. My ironing board tops are MDF and with a large overhang, the edges have sagged slightly. This has turned out to be a nice feature, though accidental... for smooth outfeed work.Most of my machine table tops are at around 35 1/4" (I think) I have made a bunch of rolling carts that are just below that height. Enough to put a 1/4" pc of ply to make it even. The are mostly parts carts, I made them slightly shorter so I can slide parts off the tablesaw onto the cart very easily. I use it to cut the angles on long crown as an infeed table, but I put it behind me.
Gotta have the right benches to make your work easy. Good idea Bass.
I don't always set the best example.Didn't your dad every teach you not to cut toward your hands? :whistling
Coke cans don't count! :laughing:Then you'd love my shop..:laughing:
I just enjoy seeing a shop
with normal storage habits. :clap::laughing:
Well, Neo and Leo... My shop is usually tolerably disheveled.:laughing:Just cleaned them up this morning. The shop is not a disaster area. Just messy. Lots of shavings on the floor from the routering of the edge profile on this door order.
Yep.:laughing:Ahhhh...I see you have horizontal disease.
Any horizontal surface is covered with something that needs to be moved. :laughing:

If I get crazy busy, the shop gets aggravatingly disorganized. I once lost an upright piano in the shop.:whistling Serious entropy happens a couple of times a year, followed by a major clean up resulting in a nice and tidy work space... but that never lasts more than a few weeks. The place usually has a "worked in" look.
Here is an "Extreme Entropy" pic:
Dusty, Here is the contents of my van and trailer, set up on a job. Dump all that portable shop gear into an already cluttered shop and... well you get the picture:WOW!!! And my old man thinks I'm a slob. That pic makes me feel so much better about myself. You cleaned out your truck. Um hmm.
