Nice rig you made there for your mitre saw, I gotta build me one of those. It's a pain in the arse cutting 12 foot long sections of crown molding without support on the ends!

For our radial arm and table saw we use those extendable stands with a roller on top....they work awesome RIPPING 12 foot board through the table saw :)

Nice shop....I don't have room here for one (my dad is 30mins away), however I have all the metric and standard wrenches and sockets I could ever need (up in to the 30mm and 1.25" range and down to 3mm and almost a pinhead sized standard....most in both deep and regular, 6 and 12 point)...plus cable tools and all the drivers, allen keys, picks, chisels....I actually could use one of those Craftsman drawer units....

Not saying this about yours, but so far I have been over two peoples houses that have them with about 20 tools in them :)

Very nice, especially for the price.

Something doesn't look quite right to me tho. I love the table top but I think I prefer the tapered leg look.

Everybody's projects look great!

And just for you, dnetmhz, look at the money you saved! (uhm, $249 ???)

I always think someone creating their own furniture is the best. Whenever I build something on contract, usually (a/the) guy says, "yeah, I could have done that." And I tell them, yes you can. And you should have. But then they ask me to build them something else.

What I need is a digital camera to record my projects.


Thanks to all for sharing!

those stands are great, particularly for people with no legs.
