New Worktable top

When my Dad and I built my work table we used 3/8" particle board for the top so that it could be replace.  Once one side is all beat up you can flip it over.  But once you've flipped it then you need to replaced it.  So that's what I did.  I cut a new piece out of a sheet and replaced the top.  Makes the table seem almost new.

Plywood Storage

I built myself a plywood storage cart that can be rolled out and put away that can store full sheets as well as scraps.  I couldn't find exactly what I wanted online so I just built it the way I wanted to using some other plans for ideas.

New Shop Tools

A few months ago a good friend of mine gifted me his General Cabinet table saw.  I just got around to moving my old Delta contractor saw out of the way and setup the new saw.  Saw has a very nice 52" fence that is very accurate.  It is a MUCH better saw than what I had.  I might be able to work on some finer projects now.

I recently bought a 14" band saw for myself and just finished putting it together.  

I also just recently got an air filter and dust collection system given to me.  I installed the filter above the table saw but need to do some shop organization before I can install the dust collection system.  Starting with building a plywood storage cart and tearing apart the plywood storage box I have now.
