Wednesday Woodworking – Clean table

The shop clean up is progressing and I managed to get a completely clean work surface:

Finally! A clean work surface.

Finally! A clean work surface.

With that I was able to finish two more planter boxes and get that material out to the garden where it belongs.

Completed planter boxes wait for dirt.

After that I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, add a pullout draw for my table saw stand.  The base has a deep shelf where I keep saw stuff – extra blades, the dado set, throat plates, etc.  It’s about 24 inches deep so stuff gets shoved to the back and somethings I’ve not seen in years, so I built this pull out so I can easily get to all the stuff.

Pull out storage for the table saw stand.

I’ll be adding a door to this to keep the dust out which has been the other problem with this storage area.

Now with done, both the table saw and assembly table are ready for work.

So that's where my water bottle is.

So that’s where my water bottle got to.

Next it’s on to cleaning up the scroll saw and marquetry areas.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

  1. If you leave yourself a fresh, cleaned off table top, your water bottle is bound to wind up there. You gotta watch out for those bottles. They’re mischievous like that.

  6. Very clever drawer you got there!
    You know, if you invented a product that would contain all the sawdust as you work, you’d be rich. 😉

  7. I love being in the shop with the smell of wood and getting organized for a productive spring! Next week, maybe I will have time to get into my fun zone too! 🙂
